The idea hatched over the summer. A group of neighbors decided to design, build, and install displays representing the Twelve Days of Christmas. Each yard would host a display representing one of the days. The results are spectacular. Sing along with me as I take you on a tour of the displays. On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me...
a partridge in a pear tree.
On the second day, my true love sent two turtle doves.
On the third day, three French hens.
On the fourth day, four calling birds.
On the fifth day, five gold rings.
On the sixth day, six geese a-laying.
On the seventh day, seven swans a-swimming.
On the eighth day, eight maids a milking.
On the ninth day, nine ladies dancing.
On the tenth day, ten lords a-leaping.
On the eleventh day, eleven pipers piping.
The detail of each display is amazing. True artistry. My first visit to the display was at night. The street and all the twelve days were bright with lighting. But the lights washed out the detail more than I wanted so I returned the next day so I could better capture the specific features of each scene.
And finally, on the twelfth day, my true love sent to me, twelve drummers drumming. The whole project is a testament to what people can do when they work together.
