“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…”
So begins one of the most famous Christmas carols in the English language.
In this edition, the iconic images are paired with the poetry of the song to ensure that future generations will stack outrageous gift upon gift for years to come.
Just about everyone knows the famous nursery rhyme-turned-song The 12 Days of Christmas, but do you know the history of how it started?
In this particular book, The 12 Days of Christmas is beautifully illustrated with neutral and elegant colors and the rhyme is written with gorgeous fonts. At the end of the book, the nursery rhyme is explained briefly, going through the history and some changes it’s gone through, it’s not long and I found it fascinating to read.
I am reviewing the kindle version, but I would be more than happy to own this book physically for my personal collection, as I’m sure it would be gorgeous as a hardback.
Overall, I give it a full 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to Christmas book fans!
