My Twelve Days of Christmas #5

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to meFive gold rings (five golden rings)Four calling birdsThree French hensTwo turtledovesAnd a partridge in a pear tree

The Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. The Twelve Days have been celebrated in Europe since before the middle ages and were a time of celebration. I may not have a partridge or a pear tree, but I have selected 12 photos from December / January to get me through this period.

      Well these were freebies at a NT house so I’m not responsible for removing all of them, though they were rather tasty.

  2. Look pretty tasty to me, Jude.

      They certainly were Janet. I’m sure Christmas has been rather different this year, hope you weren’t caught out in that horrid weather cyclone!

      1. Thankfully we weren’t and both groups of our family made it out by plane without incident. The California group had an exciting time getting home but it all worked out.

  3. They look almost too pretty to eat. What was the flavour of the biscuit? Gingerbread?
