12 Days of Christmas: Day 4

We have made it all the way to Day 4 on our countdown of the 12 Days of Christmas! Time is flying by so fast!

If you missed Day 1Day 2, and Day 3 give them a click! Christmas joys await!

"On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me, four collie birds."

What is a collie bird, you ask? In sixteenth and seventeenth century England, a coal mine was commonly called a colliery, so subsequently colly or collie, was used to describe something that was black like coal. Four collie birds = four black birds. It is thought that this verse represents a gift of food as black birds were plentiful and often eaten at the time the song was written. As the song spread to other countries, the English term fell out of use and was replaced by calling, making it "four calling birds" instead.

Whether "calling" or "collie" birds it makes no matter. Buying someone 4 black birds in todays time might only be an appropriate gift for someone that is really into Edgar Allan Poe. Why not buy them something for their favorite method of "calling" and get them a really great phone accessory instead?

Don't forget to check out Day 1Day 2, and Day 3 if you missed them! Christmas joys await!

  1. Your post are so creative. I adore them. You also taught me about the history of calling (collie) birds. I am all for learning new things. Great post!
