VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 12/14/12)—Beginning on Dec. 26 and running through Jan. 7, Judson Press’ blog, JudsOnline, will examine the traditional holiday song “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
As a phrase from the song is highlighted each day, readers are invited to test their knowledge of its historical meaning as well as its implications for Christian living. Check the blog daily at http://judsononline.com to discover the meaning of such concepts as “five golden rings” and “seven swans a-swimming.”
“The 12 Days of Christmas”-themed blog text is adapted from the Judson Press (www.judsonpress.com) book “’Tis The Season: Church Celebrations for Advent & Christmas” by Rachel Gilmore.
Readers are invited to share comments and submit guest posts to the blog.
