We're almost halfway through the twelve days of Christmas and we're all agog with curiosity, as the children chatter in childish incoherence, wondering what hidden gift Secret Santa has left on our doorstep...
🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁. 🎁 🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁

There's cackling and cooing already on our farmhouse, as the waiting for the birthday of Christ is on it's way to reaching a crescendo!

We open the door and there's PANDEMONIUM as we see the gift. You wanna know what it is, right? 😀

Today, the seventh day to CHRISTMAS, we await with trepidation at what's gonna land on our doorstep! Santa is going 'over the top' 😂 in the 'presents' 🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁department. But, the more, the merrier....So, here comes:

For the seventh day of Christmas,
My true love Santa sent to me
SEVEN SWANS A-SWIMMING 🦢🦢🦢🦢🦢🦢🦢

Seven swans a swimming!!!!! – WELL, WELL WELL!!!

With giving this, our ‘true love’ was really buying us something rather expensive. Swans have always been luxury goods, a medieval Gucci handbag, if you will. In the medieval period, swans were status symbols, exchanged between noblemen and as the centuries wore on, they became increasingly exclusive to royalty.

Any exclusive feast worth its weight in gold, had to have a swan as centrepiece, especially at Christmas feasts. Ideally, you’d roast a few swans in their feathers and put a burning piece of incense in its beak. In 1251, Henry III ordered 125 swans for the Christmas feast for his court. Dining with the King in winter meant eating swan! #FUNFACT

Hi folks! The doorbell is ringing furiously and we're rushing to open it ... There are a lot of cheery voices and we're waiting to see today's gift... (Don't forget! These are just the outer gifts, wrappings, if you like, but the true spiritual gift will be revealed DURING the TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!)
🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁

Wanna know what has arrived??????😀😍

JESUS' COMING IS NIGH! Prepare the way for him...🙏🙏🙏

Christmas is just around the corner! In prayerful expectation we await the 'REASON FOR THIS SEASON - JESUS! 🙏❤️🌹🙏

And Jesus is the reason we celebrate in great merriment and cheer, this fast approaching Christmas season. We make plans for the giving of special gifts to those who need love and support! ❤️❤️❤️

But yes! We're the recipients of gifts too, from Secret Santa, who is disguising the inner gifts with outer wrappings and trappings to gladden the heart at Christmas time.

But Jesus was born in an atmosphere that was poor and humble! Amidst cattle and hay, straw and shepherds. And YET, his BIRTH was the MOST SPECTACULAR!
