12 Days of Christmas is Part of the Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound

The origin of this Sound Christmas Classic is not known, but many believe each line is a Catholic metaphor with A Partridge In A Pear Tree as Jesus Christ.  It’s over 400 years old and it’s one of the most parodied Christmas songs of all time.  Comedic versions can be found by Bob & Doug Mackenzie, The Chipmunks and the Muppets with Miss Piggy playing the diva.  The song had a big resurgence in 2013 when Straight No Chaser – an Acapella group – did a mashup with Toto’s Africa and posted it on Youtube gathering over 23 million views.  12 Days of Christmas is part of The Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound.
