  25. Such cute cards, Giovana. The story behind the "12 Days of Christmas" song is that it was a stealthy way to teach British children Protestant doctrine during the period of time that Britain was forced to return to the Catholic church under Queen Mary. Each number represents a different doctrinal truth. The first day of Christmas stands for only one God, etc. I'll see if I can find the entire explanation for you. It's very, very cool.
