Christmas Fun: The 12 Days of Christmas… Tweaked

November 08th, 2009

As always I find when I tweak the ordinary extraordinary things happen. Try this version of the 12 Days of Christmas (Click for the ‘Original Version’)

This game is best played on a family you will be spending Christmas with or will see on Christmas day. My version of this is as follows:

Step 1: Make 12 individual cards with the following writing:

On the 1st day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some pears from the tree the partridge sat in

On the 2nd day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some turtles on a bar of Dove soap

On the 3rd day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some noodle soup compliments of the 3 The French Hens

On the 4th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… A telephone message pad designed by the 4 calling birds

On the 5th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… 5 gold rings

On the 6th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some eggnog made from the eggs the 6 geese laid

On the 7th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… A box of tissues that those silly swans needed after they caught a cold while swimming in the winter

On the 8th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… The chocolate Milk we got from eight maids milking eight brown cows

On the 9th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Nine canes used by the nine dancing ladies(they needed them to get home)

On the 10th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some “Ben Gay” recommended for use by 10 lords we saw out leaping

On the 11th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… Some pickles since the pipers stopped piping and started picking a peck of pickles for us to give you

On the 12th day of Christmas OUR FAMILY GIVES TO YOURS… A dozen beers that the twelve drunk drummers left behind,

Step 2: The each night starting the 12th day before Christmas you leave the 1st note and appropriate gift on the doorstep. The 1st couple of nights you can try ringing door bell and running away… Go at different times because soon kids in house are taking shifts to watch the door and try and catch mystery person leaving gifts.  The whole idea is not to get caught or found out right up until Christmas day.

More exciting and difficult these days with motion detector security lights coming on!

Step 3: Now if singing this song you can ask people whose birthday is in January to stand up every time the first day of Christmas verse is sung those whose birthday is February stand up for 2nd verse and so on through 12 verses depending what month your birthday is.

The visual is quite funny as people look like “Happy Jack-in-a-boxes” getting up and down as song repeats itself!!
