Eighth Day
At the end of the song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas", how many gifts did "my true love" actually give "to me"?
Answer: 364, answered by Mr. Miller
That's 12 partridges, 22 turtledoves, 30 French hens :}, 36 calling birds, 40 golden rings, 42 geese (!), 42 swans, 40 milkmaids (was my true love a slaver or something?)36 pipers, 30 drummers, 22 lords and 12 ladies. Notice how the numbers go 12, 22, 30, 40, 42, 42, 40, 30, 22, 12. (It's a code! Nah.)
And there are 41 musical settings for "Away in a Manger". (no one got this one!)
The Gingerbread Man Award goes to Mary the Twin for answering one question correctly.

The Double-Candy Cane award goes to Mr. Miller for answering the rest of the questions correctly.

God bless and have a nice day!
