The Twelve Days of Christmas

Celebrate the twelve days of Christmas from December 26 through January 6. Each link in the song leads to information about that day's gifts. We've also added links to some fun activities to do based on the 12 Days of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

The price is up $8,508 or 10.9 percent, from $78,100 last year. Dec. 1, 2008
