Because we have loved so many variations of the 12 Days of Christmas, a few years ago we decided to work on writing our own version. We started by sharing our Christmas Song Favorites & Writing Our Own. This led to our final video, singing creation….The 12 Days of Christmas….. Ciravola Style!

The 12 Days of Christmas is a very popular song and book for the holiday season. Therefore I have compiled some awesome resources for you to enjoy with your family along with this classic book and song.
