The Gunblast.com 12 Days of Christmas
December 16, 2005
It is now approximately eleven days until Christmas, and while humming Christmas carols today, I thought about one of the most common holiday songs, “The 12 Days of Christmas”. I explored what the song originally meant, and am sharing some of this information with you. And, I thought that perhaps we should change the song a bit to fit the perspectives of us gun lovers.
The song was written, according to old Roman Catholic tradition, as both a secular love song and as a memory aid for teaching the Christian faith during times where Roman Catholics in England were not allowed to openly practice their faith. From a secular perspective, the song was supposedly about a single French woman whose true love, a man, sent her gifts. The timeframe was somewhere in the period between 1558 and 1600. The Christian connotations in this popular song are as follows:
This information was taken indirectly from the Catholic Information and Urban Legends websites.
Now you know the true meaning of the song. Not to discount the true Christian perspective by any means, but in the likes of Ray Stevens and others like him, here goes the Gunblast.com version of the 12 Days of Christmas. You won’t be able to resist singing along I’m sure.
