“The Twelve Days of Christmas” is a Christmas carol in the style of a cumulative song, enumerating the gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. This is the period between the birth of Christ and the coming of the three wise men, the Magi. Effectively it starts on December 25 (Christmas) and lasts until January 6 (the Epiphany).
The carol was first published in 1780 in England in the children’s book Mirth Without Mischief. However, its origins probably lie long back in time, as the tradition of the “12 Days” itself. It was set to music by Frederic Austin in 1909.
