12 Days of Christmas is a traditional Christmas song, but the meaning is symbolic and is not easy to understand. There are quite a lot of explanations for what the figures of the lyrics might mean. For example:

The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

2 Turtle Doves = the Old and New Testaments

3 French Hens = Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues

4 Calling Birds = the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists

5 Golden Rings = the first Five Books of the Old Testament which give the history of man's fall from grace

6 Geese A-laying = the six days of creation

7 Swans A-swimming = the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit

8 Maids A-milking = the eight beatitudes

9 Ladies Dancing = the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit

10 Lords A-leaping = the Ten Commandments

11 Pipers Piping = the eleven faithful apostles

12 Drummers Drumming = the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle's Creed
