Seven Swans....

The countdown continues and we find ourselves surrounded by even more birds...what was it with these people and all of these birds??!!  They must have been cleaning and picking up eggs and feathers for days on end once the 12 Days of Christmas had been completed.

On the Sixth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...


...the creation of the world!  Wait, what?!  That's not what the song says!  No, it isn't.  BUT that is what the six geese a-laying represented...the six days of creation!  Who knew, right?

On the Seventh Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...


...seven unique spiritual gifts...disguised as swimming swans.  These include Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.

I was going to add a few appetizer recipes for everyone's big New Year's Eve celebration, but after all these birds, all the food I've eaten for the past 2 weeks and all of the eggnog I've been drinking, I just couldn't bring myself to look at any more food.  I may be able to share a few things at the end of the 12 Days of Christmas, but since all of these birds can be cooked and eaten, I figured I would let your imagination kick into overdrive so you could create some special recipes of your own using all of these birds.

I want them out of the house as I think they've eaten my Five Golden Rings and there is nothing left of the Pear Tree!
