The Seventh Day of Christmas

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree!

Graceful swans symbolize the seven gifts of grace of the Holy Spirit, as listed in the twelfth book of Romans.

I did make the little swan container for my Mom for Christmas. This is the one suggested decoration that I actually followed through with, as the others were either complex or required that I buy stuff from a craft store. The suggested activity for today is to go swimming. Really? It’s a Christmas book published in the northern hemisphere and they suggest swimming? I don’t know that I’ll make it. Especially, as today’s New Year’s Eve, and the holiday tomorrow.

This is a swan’s egg. I can probably make a swan’s egg out of all of the snow we are going to be getting. Hopefully, this is an acceptable substitute! 🙂
