and now some history of day 1 of the 12 days of christmas…first off…1 partridge in a pear tree in 2012 will run you about $3.49 for the partridge (with FREE SHIPPING!) and a Kieffer Pear tree becasue apparently it will (may) survive the chilly winters on MN for $159.75 (9 ft tree) and $40 shipping for a total of $203.24.

“Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law – private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.” –www.byrum.org

Thus The 12 Days of Christmas was written as a memory aid to learning the Christian Faith.  The partridge in a pear tree refers to Jesus Christ.

So that’s all for day 1.

**remember today only with purchase of any thread from our Etsy shoppe you will receive the Lucky Charms pattern FREE!  be sure to let me know in the “Note to Seller” if you want me to hold all your orders until the end of the 12 days.  your order will then ship on or around Jan. 9th.  Shipping will be figured and any extra charges will be refunded.

Join us tomorrow for the Day 2…

have a safe and happy Christmas!
