  2. I'm only a fan of the 12 days of Christmas when my kids sing it and make up funny things to substitute for the gifts.

  3. I love singing it, but I always seem to forget who's doing what around the 8th day.

    Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  4. I used to love the song when I was in elementary school - Then it just gets stuck in your head!! I like it still but not as much as before.
    I do love Christmas though...

  5. We sang it last year at a church Christmas party and it was so much fun. They handed out slips of paper with numbers to everyone as they walked in. When your number/day was called you stood to sing your part. It was so much fun because you didn't know who would be in your group and they could be across the room from you. I think it was the most fun I have ever had with that song.

  7. I love the song as well but I have a raspy voice so singing it is not that great. I do it anyway. That and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. I have 3 preschoolers so they all think I sing wonderfully!!

  9. The only thing I don't like about the song is that I can never remember what everyone is doing so I usually end up singing something like, "12 rings a singing, 10 caaaaans of Spam! da da da da da da da da da da da da da da!"

    And I KNOW it isn't right, but I can't remember what it should be! lol.

  11. I quess I am a closet grinch, I have never admitted before that I reaaly don't like this song. I love simple Christams carols like Silent Night.

    Love the book, with 9 young grandkids it would be fun to make and give.

  12. Love the book! I'd love to create my own fabric patterns on Spoonflower but just can't seem to figure it out.

    I'm not a huge fan of The Twelve Days of Christmas (but my daughter is!). I prefer the song The Twelve Pains of Christmas. Do you know it? It's amazing.

  13. When I think of the 12 days of Christmas I always laugh, because when we sing it at church, it's an audience participation thing and its always hilarions.

  14. We always listened to http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Together-John-Denver-Muppets/dp/B000001VD4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1258134373&sr=8-1 at Christmas. Miss Piggy does the "Five Golden Rings" bit and it gets progressively louder and louder throughout the song, so that was always my favorite part.

  15. When I was little my sister and our cousins and I dressed up and performed a dance to this song in front of all the aunts and uncles and family. I always think of that and the motions when I hear this song...! good memories..

  16. I have always been turned off by this song until I started reading and singing it with my daughter, like so many things with children I suddenly have a change of heart and enjoy it as much as she does

  17. I totally agree w/ Shannon. I only like the Muppets version. I don't mind the song in general but it can be a bit much :)

  18. I must be weird, but I love that song. Sure it's quirky, but what they hey...

  19. I'm pretty neutral about the song, actually.:)

  20. The song is a classic! I always thought "a partridge in a pear tree" was so poetic and of course in my mind the pear has to be gold.

  21. I love to sing the song, even though none of the gifts make any sense!

  22. I like the song...the first couple of times.

  23. Lol. It's not my favorite but it isn't too bad. :) But i love your fabric bc it's so cute. Your drawings are divine. :)

  24. The 12 days of Christmas is one of those songs that leaves you with a lot of questions like: "I thought Christmas was only one day, what gives?" and "lords a leaping? whaaaaaaat?" But no one can deny that is a fun song to sing with all your friends :)
    Crossing fingers!!

  25. My tinies love this song, and of course the 'five gooooooold rings' is their favourite bit. Also helps with their counting skills - a big plus in my book. They would love a fabric book of the song, so fingers crossed!

  26. It's not one of my favorite Christmas songs, but as a kid I loved the imagery. My grandfather had - and I guess still has - a Christmas song book (for piano), and I loved the illustrations in it, for this song especially. And as a kid I loved when it got to "5 GOLDEN RINGS"... as an adult, I now love the bird imagery.

  27. I think I might be too late but I will say I love, love, LOVE your little book!
    What a fabulous idea :)

  28. Im not sure if Im too late too cause Im the other side of the world. But....my little story of the 12 days of christmas song stems from when I was a child. I grew up as a Jehovahs Witness who if you dont know, dont celebrate Christmas (long story). So as a child I desperately loved all of the Christmas pagentry, but could not actually participate. I wasnt interested in the presents I was fascinated by the decorations. Ive always had a thing for glitter glitz and glamour. Anyway, one christmas when I was around maybe 7 or 8 (grade 3 in primary school so whats that? I started prep at age 4 so 4 years on is 8), for some reason we learnt the words and tune to the 12 days of christmas as a session in class. We had someone who was not our normal teacher and she didnt know to exclude me. I tell you I sucked up that song like a starving person and proceeded to sing it at the top of my lungs at any opportunity much to the embarrassment and disgust of my parents. They couldnt seem to stop me and so I have a special fondness for the song even though as an adult I really dont like it now....am going to buy this fabric to make a book for a friends little boy - hes just turned 1.

  29. I love the version that is sung by mickey mouse and friends - it gets really chaotic at the end. It makes me laugh everytime.

    Thanks for the tutorial!
