Readers, it’s been a long, strange trip trying to take “The Twelve Days of Christmas” into the modern era. Some designs were easy to find, others a little more difficult (I’m looking at you, lords-a-leaping), but I feel like at least we’re ending on something of a high note. I had to include one of my favorite drummers (Animal from The Muppets, of course), but if you have a real drummer in your life, I think these Mix Stix would be a super-cute gift. Pa rum pum pum pum!

    Thanks for these posts — I really enjoyed your efforts. "The Twelve Days of Christmas" makes me think that in days of yore, Christmas was all about birds and music! Oh, and milkmaids too — now how do they fit in? ^_^

      That's so sweet of you to say! Thanks for reading. :) I had a fun time hunting for everything, but yes, still wonder about the bird and music obsessions.
