sweetwater's 12 days of christmas

and now some history of day 7 of the 12 days of christmas…first off….7 Swans-a-Swimming.  I found the Australian Black swan for $422.50/each so 7 will run you $2957.50 plus $1600 to ship ($400 per pair)…so your swans will run you $4557.50.

“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 7 Swans-a-Swimming refer to the 7 Sacraments, the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

So that’s all for day 7.

**remember today only with purchase of a notion from our Etsy shoppe you will receive the 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 8…
