Here we have the drum roll of all drum rolls as our True Love gives her the whole whammy of 78 gifts today.
Yes, yes, I know the song goes “On the ‘Whatever’ Day of Christmas my true love gave to me”, but you get the gist!
Twelve drummers have joined our happy band and with all the rest over the preceding 11 days, there are a total of 364 gifts, one for every day of the year except Christmas Day (well everyone’s entitled to a day off).
Just in case you were wondering, she probably lives in a huge house with a large acreage to accommodate
12 partridges and pear trees
22 turtle doves
30 french hens
36 colly (calling/black) birds
40 gold rings
40 milk maids (and probably the cows being milked)
36 dancing ladies
30 leaping Lords
