The Twelve Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas tune that counts an arrangement of in an every expanding degree fabulous blessings given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. The tune, first printed in England in 1780 without music as a serenade or rhyme, is thought to be French in root. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 68. The tunes of gathered form differ. The standard tune now connected with it is inferred from a 1909 plan of the accepted people tune by English writer Frederic Austin, who first presented the now recognizable prolongation of the verse “five gold rings”.
