and now some history of day 3 of the 12 days of christmas…first off….3 French Hens (Salmon Faverolle breed) cost $4.76/each for a total of $14.28 plus $20 shipping for a total of $34.28.

“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 3 French Hens refer to the 3 Theological Virtues:  Faith, Hope and Charity.

So that’s all for day 3.

**remember today only with purchase of the Flannel from our Etsy shoppe you will receive the Cabin in the Woods 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 4…

Sylvia will return on Thursday, January 10th with the BACK2basics starting on Saturday, January 12th!
