It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church.
Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality, which the children could remember.
« The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
« Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
« Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.
« The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
« The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.
« The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
« Seven swans a-swimming represented the seven fold gifts of the Holy Spirit: Prophesy Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
« The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
« Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.
« The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.
« The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
« The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.
So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol


Thank you, Vikki Jo. I never knew this. Love it!

I am probably not done, not because I need more but, because I love doing this and have the mojo to do so right now.

Thanks for organizing this Ann
