Twelve Days of Christmas

I really wanted to do a project based off of something to pull inspiration from so I think with the holidays and everything using the twelve days of christmas would be a perfect start.

The twelve days of christmas start on either Christmas day or the day after the 26th, and goes for 12 days until Epiphany (or three kings day) on the 5th or 6th. I've decided I'm going to try to do outfits inspired by each day and post them on the corresponding days.

I'd love for more people to get involved. You don't have to do everyday but if you have an awesome idea for 5 golden rings or 12 drummers drumming then take a picture and tell me about your blog post or send me the picture, and I'll also post yours. So what do you think? Sounds fun? I think it'll also be good because I know I will be spotty with posting at the holidays but this way I will have photos for you!

Here are the dates:
Dec 26th - A partrigde in a pear tree
Dec 27th - 2 turtle doves
Dec 28th - 3 french hens
Dec 29th - 4 calling birds
Dec 30th - 5 gold rings
Dec 31st - 6 geese a laying
Jan 1st - 7 swans a swimming
Jan 2nd - 8 maids a milking
Jan 3rd - 9 ladies dancing
Jan 4th - 10 lords a leaping
Jan 5th - 11 pipers piping
Jan 6th - 12 drummers drumming

Here's wikipedia with a little info on the 12 days of christmas, and the twelfth night that I found interesting. > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Days_of_Christmas

I hope you join me :)

Huggles,
Lauren

I had been thinking of the 12 days too lately. I'll bet I could come up with one photo for you.

I'm all for outfit challenges! This will be cool to try.

I'm a little annoyed that I never knew the history of the 12 days of Christmas. I mean, I really don't even know much about Three Kings Day even but this all sounds so interesting!! I don't think I am very creative and could think of anything though. :(
