On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking, 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!
The nine ladies symbolize the fruits of the Spirit as listed in Galatians.
Today’s family celebration is to learn a new dance. What’s your favorite dance? What shall I try tonight?
