12 Days of Christmas Ancestors

If you didn't have time to do 25 days of Advent posts, 
how about trying 12 Days of Christmas Ancestors?

The 12 Days of Christmas is the span between the birth of Christ and the arrival of the magi. So starts Christmas day December 25, and ends January 5th, with Epiphany on the 6th. If you wish you can start December 26 and end January 6th. 

So the rule would be to match an ancestor to one of the gifts of the poem (song) "The 12 Days of Christmas". I like this old version, but you can use whichever you want. 

You can check out my last year posts of 12 Days of Christmas for inspiration, but you can interpret the gifts any way you like to fit with your ancestors.

I will be doing this, something to do in the quiet after the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and hope many of you will join me. I look forward to reading your interpretations of the song. Some of them look a little tricky! 

Are you up for the Challenge? Let's use hashtag #12DaysOfAncestors
