The First Day of Christmas (Tudor Style)

   Posted by: Dorothea Preis   in Medieval Miscellany

At our December General Meeting one of the highlights were familiar Christmas carols with new – Ricardian – texts.  One of them was ‘Henry Tudor’s Christmas Wish List’.  This Tudor version of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ has been a favourite with our branch for a long time, so long in fact that nobody can remember who originally penned it.  Could the original author please come forward, we would like to award you a virtual laurel wreath!

We will bring you our version of this carol over the twelve days of Christmas and hope you enjoy it as much as we have done.

On the first day of Christmas my mummy sent to me
A crown in a hawthorn bush.
