Known today as a traditional Christmas carol enjoyed up to December 25th, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" originally referred to a period of celebration between December 25th and January 5th. More than a thousand years after it was defined by the Council of Tours, the poem from which the song originates was played as a memorization game, with children who couldn't repeat the list of gifts giving a "forfeit." The poem was set to music in 1909, the full version having more time-signature changes than the average Dream Theater album.The Twelve Days of Christmas was published by The Society for Visual Education (SVE) and is catalog number A 860-24. This filmstrip was very faded and reddened; color correction is approximate. While the filmstrip itself shows a copyright date of 1963, the accompanying soundtrack cassette shows a copyright of 1972, so it is unclear when this version was published.
