I know, it’s a little soon to be talking about the holidays, but I’m trying to get my shopping done early this year. And while thinking about gifts, I started to wonder what anyone would do with a partridge in a pear tree anyway? Let alone 8 maids a-milking… The Twelve Days of Christmas is a pretty absurd song, especially when you start to add up all those presents. The only appealing part of that entire list is the 5 golden rings… until you find out that “golden rings” are just another type of bird. And if you do the math you end up with 376 (completely useless) gifts—or 416 gifts if you assume that the milk maids come with their own cows. Check out The Twelve Days of Christmas by the Numbers infographic for the full break down of this insane list of Christmas presents.
