Twelve Days of Christmas: Eighth Day
My mother’s brother and his family lived in Germany. Every Christmas we waited for a big wooden crate to arrive from Europe packed with beautiful gifts and German treats. One year, he sent a velvet angel tree ornament. Our precious angel sat on top of our family Christmas tree for many years. I have always loved angels. Therefore I have many angels around the house for different seasons and special occassions. From time to time they whisper to me. But my most special angels are my Christmas angels.
On the Eighth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
eight Christmas angels,
seven pickle liqueurs,
six cookie cutters,
four vintage snowmen,
three special balls,
two wooden skis,
and a Christmas plate for Santa’s midnight snack.
We are flying high now!
