In the whole body of Christmas carols sung in English, among the most famous and beloved is a song universally called “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Although its association with the holiday remains unquestioned, the tune was originally a raucous drinking song with wildly different connotations. This book documents the unfamiliar and distant history of one of the world’s most well-known holiday songs. The surprising history of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” is inextricably linked to the earliest celebrations of Christmas, a festival that was suppressed by the Church itself.

The rowdy and mischievous tone of traditional Christmas has vanished, as have the songs that accompanied the festival of drinking, gambling, fighting, feasting and sex. Modern participants of Christmas may be either embarrassed or pleased to discover the scandalous roots of a beloved holiday classic.
