The 12 Days of Christmas Song

History/ Origin: The Twelve Days of Christmas was originally a poem without accompanying music. It was first published in England in 1780. However, the origin is believed to be France. The original author is unknown.

There are many versions of the poem. The standard version (with music) that we know today, was composed by English Composer Frederic Austin.
