My sweet friend Laura from Casa del Hansen is hosting a 12 Days of Christmas bloghop, which I happily joined. Each day, I will do a short post. Today is Day 1 - a partridge in a pear tree.
The 12 Days of Christmas actually start the day after Christmas up to the day before Epiphany, but here in the states we think of it as the 12 days prior to Christmas.
I am using the 12 Days of Christmas for memories and to mention those dear to me.
On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree.
A partridge only reminds me of a snipe hunt, since partridges are not common in the States, I will look at pear tree. Pear trees remind me of one thing - my Italian grandmother. She had several fruit trees in her yard and my favorite was her pear tree. I couldn't wait for the taste of those succulant ripe pears.
If you are wondering what a partridge is, here is a pic:
My grandmother was the strongest person I knew growing up. She had quite the temper. Grandma had a unique gift. She had some psychic abilities and a knack for dream interpretation. I love and miss her very much.
What does a partridge in a pear tree mean to you? Have you ever been on a snipe hunt? I have.
