On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Twelve windowpanes, eleven sparkly trees, ten ornaments, nine blinking lights, eight nuns a-running, seven ladybugs, six nesting envelopes, FIVE RAUCOUS MUSICIANS … four flopping fish, three stacked sheep, two Tarzans, and (sing it with me) a peacock in a pine tree!!!
