Twelve Days of English Christmas

19 grudnia 2016, poniedziałek,

We have officially entered the festive season. Advent has started and the countdown to the end of the year begun. One of the most popular English carols to celebrate the festivities is ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas.’ The rhyming chant was first published in 1780 and the standard tune we now sing the lyrics to in the UK came much later in 1909. Here is our BritIt version of the lyrics to help us all get into the festive mood. Why don’t you play the tune as you read along?  Enjoy your English gifts and forgive us if the carol gets stuck in your head all day!
