The Eleventh Day of Christmas

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: eleven pipers piping, ten lords-a-leaping, 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 pipers are the eleven disciples who remained faithful.

Suggested activity is to make cake or cookies with piped frosting. I kind of did this already with my mom for our Christmas cookies. Not that I had any skill whatsoever…

These were decorated by an adult, not a toddler, as you might assume

12 Days of Christmas for My Priest: Day 11

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my friend Jenn gave to me: eleven saints praying on my behalf, ten minutes of spiritual reading, nine chapters read of the Gospels, eight chapters read of the NT, seven prayers throughout the day, six chapters read of the OT, FIVE MINUTES OF SILENCE!  (Shhh…), all four rosaries, three acts of penance, two photographs, and one hour of Adoration!
