Happy Seventh Day of Christmas

Seven swans a-swimming.

"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"With the onset of more Americanized and secular traditions throughout the past two centuries (such as the American 'Santa Claus,' popularity of Christmas Eve itself as a holiday, and rise in popularity of New Year's Eve parties as well), the traditions of the Twelve Days of Christmas have been largely forgotten in the U.S.... Indeed, contemporary marketing and media tend to espouse the (erroneous) belief that the Twelve Days end on Christmas."

The Twelve Days begin on Christmas and end with Epiphany.
