Colinde de Craciun si Anul Nou

In Marea Britanie si in natiunile apartinand Commonwealth-ului, The Twelve Days of Christmas (cele douasprezece zile ale Craciunului) sunt zilele festive care incep cu ziua de Craciun (25 decembrie) si se sfarsesc pe 5 ianuarie (Ajunul Bobotezei).

In Anglia Evului Mediu, cele 12 zile erau o perioada de sarbatoare si petreceri, veselia culminand cu cea de-a 12 zi. Insusi William Shakespeare a imortalizat acest obicei in celebra sa comedie „A douasprezecea noapte”.

O parte din traditiile asociate Craciunului sunt o adaptare (prin suprapunerea unor elemente crestine) a unor obiceiuri stravechi, ce tin de perioada pagana (cum ar fi Saturnaliile la romani sau sarbatorile numite Yuletide la germani).

Obiceiul celor 12 zile ale Craciunului a fost adus si in America de Nord de catre colonisti, cu unele modificari. Un obicei raspandit era atarnarea la usa de la intrare a unei coroane din crengute de brad (sau alte frunze verzi), impodobita cu ornamente si fructe, care se pastra pana in ziua de Boboteaza, zi in care se pregatea si o prajitura speciala numita „prajitura regelui” (king cake).

In zilele de astazi, cele 12 zile si nopti ce alcatuiesc  „Christmastide” (anotimpul sau sarbatoarea Craciunului) se sarbatoresc in mod diferit de catre crestinii din lumea intreaga. In functie de traditia locala, darurile de Craciun se ofera fie doar in noptea de Ajun, sau abia in a 12-a zi, sau chiar in fiecare din cele 12 zile si nopti, ca in acest cantecel.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas- Children Song (Lyrics)

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the seventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the ninth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the tenth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!
