On The First day of Christmas......A Partridge in a Pear Tree

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me...A Partridge in a Pear Tree. The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ's sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: "Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . ." (Luke 13:34)

We hope you will join us at Ribbons Roses and More to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. There you will find so many beautiful items to decorate your Shabby Chic and Victorian Home.

Be sure to stop by Shabby Cottage Shops Blog and sign up for our blog give away. It's a little bit of work but it's well worth it. We are offering $350.00 worth of products. All you have to do is find the ornament and let Debie know where you find them.... You can get there by clicking this link ~ Shabby Cottage Shops or the package at the top of the right hand side bar.
