9 Drummers Drumming
Love this ornament purchased for my grandson. These are the first ornaments I've ever bought from Patience Brewster and I will certainly be ordering in the future. This ornament was very well packaged and looks exactly like the picture. (Posted on 1/24/2016)
not going to buy
I also find it odd that these ornaments don't match today's version of the song....historically right or wrong. I was going to buy the tree with the 12 ornamnets but decided against it. (Posted on 12/19/2015)
Explanation of 12 Days Order
Hi Susan,

Thank you so much for your message!

I apologize for the confusion regarding our 12 Days line up.

When Patience went to work on this collection, she noticed several variations. She used the earliest one she could find which was an Old English version. The earliest known printed book of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” (ca. 1780) in the children’s book Mirth without Mischief lists the verses in the following order:

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Twelve lords a leaping,
Eleven ladies dancing,
Ten pipers piping,
Nine drummers drumming,
Eight maids a milking,
Seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying,
Five gold rings.
Four colley birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree.

There is some historical significance to this version as the verses put the gifts in order of societal ranking at the time, putting the highest, the Lords, at the end (12 lords a leaping).
If you would like to read more about this, please see the 12 Days of Christmas reference below:

I hope that this information is helpful. We hope it might even perhaps offer a bonding opportunity for you and your granddaughter to learn this very old, (alas maybe less popular) original version of the 12 Days of Christmas together!

If you have any questions or concerns, or if there is anything else we can do for you please let us know! Thank you!

Unhappy
I have purchased a 12 Days ornament for my granddaughter every year and now that I am at 9 and was going to purchase the remaining 4 so I would have them, I find that they are not correct to the song! I have looked up the lyrics on several sites and the lyrics I find are 9 ladies, 10 lords, 11 pipers, 12 drummers. Why are the Brewster ornaments not as the song lyrics tell? (Posted on 9/30/2015)
