On the Tenth Day of Christmas......

On the tenth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
( Or does 10 Lords A-leaping refer to the ten commandments?)
Also on this day in history

Lucretia Coffin Mott (January 3, 1793 – November 11, 1880) was an American Quaker minister, abolitionist, social reformer and proponent of women's rights. She is credited as the first American "feminist" in the early 1800s but was, more accurately, the initiator of women's political advocacy.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE (pronounced /ˈtɒlkiːn/[1]) (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

How I love the works of Tolkien! I read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings "end-to-end," meaning as soon as I finish, I pick it right back up again -- do that with several books! But his I love best in all the world...

Me too Holly. It's believed that he wrote Lord of the Rings to help lay the demons to rest from when he served in ww1......I also enjoyed the film which I felt was adapted well....Hugs Chrissy x
