The Twelve Days of Christmas…

OK. So, here are links to a couple of different sites with answers:
Snopes declaring the whole thing false.
The Christian Resource Institute

A Partridge in a Pear Tree refers to Christ when he said, “I would shelter you like a mother hen.”
Two Turtle Doves refers to the Old and New Testaments
Three French Hens refers to Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues (Liz also suggests the Holy Trinity)
Four Calling Birds refers to the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists
Five Golden Rings refers to the first Five Books of the Old Testament, the "Pentateuch", which gives the history of man's fall from grace. (Liz really likes saying the word, “Pentateuch.”)Six Geese A-laying refers to the six days of creation
Seven Swans A-swimming refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and the seven sacraments (Liz also suggests the 7 petitions in the Lord's Prayer)
Eight Maids A-milking refers to the eight beatitudes
Nine Ladies Dancing refers to the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit
Ten Lords A-leaping refers to the ten commandments
Eleven Pipers Piping refers to the eleven faithful apostles
Twelve Drummers Drumming refers to the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle's Creed (Liz adds also the 12 Tribes of Israel)
And of course, our “True Love” is God.
