On the fifth day of Christmas Daily Delights, I give to thee…FIIIIIIVVVEEEEE GOOLLLDEENNNNN RIIIIINNNGSSSS!!!!! (And: FOUR CALLING BIRDS, THREE FRENCH HENS, TWO TURTLE DOVES AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEEE!) This is my very favorite part of the song, because even people who weren’t singing the carol before jump in just for this line. (On some VH1 “I Love the 80s” special, a comedian cracked that the whole point of R.E.M.’s “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” is so that groups of frat boys can sing “LEONARD BERNSTEIN!” in unison, and that’s kind of how I feel about this part of the 12 Days. It’s the fun “LEONARD BERNSTEIN!” part.)

I read that the five golden rings lyric actually refers to birds again (like ring-necked pheasants), but we’ve already covered birds exhaustively I feel, so let’s move on, shall we? I’ve gathered a little assortment of ringed wonders here that are sure to be more well-received than any feathered creature, and while I’m not-so-secretly hoping for a golden ring that I can wear on my finger from my true love soon, I’d also take the gorgeous trivet in the top left corner. Which “ring” is your favorite? Tell me in the comments!

    I love the golden circles fireplace screen — so classy! I think I like the idea of combining the gold ring and bird themes. How about these Gold Bird Napkin Rings with Swarovsky Crystals:

    They come in a set of four, so one more ring is needed. Not a problem — just add this delicate little gold Harbinger Ring, adorned with a tiny gold warbler:

    Who wouldn't want to find these lovely items under the Christmas tree this year? I know I wouldn't complain!
