4, 7" 12 Days Of Christmas Event Plates

The Christmas carol about the 12 Days of Christmas has always intrigued me because the characters were so unusual...and then I came across an explanation of the meaning of each day! These meanings have warmed my heart and made the song my favorite...let's see you agree....

It is believed that at the time of its writing the song was a code for the Church during the days of Christian persecution..so the characters of each day have a specific meaning so the Christians of that day could communicate about their faith....

The partridge in a pear tree stands for Jesus Christ Two turtle doves for the Old and New Testament Three french hens....the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost....other descriptions also say they stand for faith, hope and love...I like the first one best! The four calling birds...the gospels...Matthew, Mark, Luke ,and John The five golden rings represent the Torah or Law...the first five books of the Old Testament.. The six geese-a-laying stand for the six days of creation. Seven swans a-swimming represent the the gifts of the Holy Spirit..Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy. Eight maid maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes. Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit...Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self control... Ten lords a-leaping...the ten commandments. The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.. The twelve drummers drumming stand for the 12 points of belief in the Apostles' Creed...

This year you can start your collection of the NEW 12 Days Of Christmas dessert plates...perfect for display and of course for serving..It includes the first four days.... The following 8 days have already been designed so you can look forward to the next releases in 2013 and 2014. I am very proud of this collection...As I painted the designs I really thought about what they represent!! It made my heart smile and made me realized how blessed I am!
