The Christmas Special
---------------------------------
There have been some Christmas themed limericks in the limerick thread and it made me think, “Why not re-write the twelve days of Christmas taking it in turns with a line each.” Stay as close as you can to the metre and rhythm of the original, but drift as far as you like from the sense.

Here is the original list for reference
A partridge in a pear tree
Two turtle doves
Three French hens
Four calling birds
Five gold rings
Six geese a laying
Seven swans a swimming
Eight maids a milking
Nine ladies dancing
Ten lords a leaping
Eleven pipers piping
Twelve drummers drumming.
Now go:-

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
