The Origins of the Design; 

'The Twelve Days of Christmas' is a traditional Christmas song first published in England in 1780 but thought to be of French origin. It is a cumulative song where each verse builds on top of the previous. As the verses accumulate, so do the gifts; by the end of the twelve days the true love would have received 12 partridges, 12 pear trees, 22 doves, 30 French hens, 36 colly birds, 40 gold rings, 42 geese, 42 swans, 40 maids, 40 cows, 36 ladies, 30 lords, 22 pipers and 12 drummers! I have used the original ‘colly’ birds which is a traditional name for black birds rather than the often-sung modern version of ‘calling’ birds.
