On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Eight maids a-milking, Seven swans a-swimming, Six geese a-laying, Five golden rings, Four calling birds, Three French hens, Two turtle doves, And a partridge in a pear tree.
Note: Where do I begin with researching the image of "Eight maids a-milking". Nothing untoward just very interesting. Some links that didn't quite cut the mustard for me but worth a laff! Firstly the above image must be given credit to 'TrekEarth'. Other notable images include "How stuff works", "Table and Home", "dkKnits" and "Winterberry".
