The Real 12 Days of Christmas

In the 16th century, England proclaimed 
an official state church, 
any other religious teaching was strictly forbidden. 
So, for the next three centuries,
 those who refused to join the state church 
developed creative ways to teach 
their children the truth of the Bible. 
One popular method was lyrics and song.

Discover the 'hidden' symbols in the familiar carol 
'12 Days of Christmas' 
where 'My True Love' refers to God!

Here are slides adapted from Helen Haidles beloved book,
 'The Real 12 Day of Christmas',
One of my favorite books to read to my kids this time of year.
