Christmas – it’s our favourite time of the year and we particularly love celebrating the tons of traditions that make this holiday season even more special and heartfelt. This year we’re giving the ever so popular ‘The 12 days of Christmas’ song a Bdesign twist and we’ve partnered up with Dino Fino Home to make it even more unique.

First, let’s get the dates straight. 

For those of you who might not be aware, the 12 Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. This special period has been celebrated in Europe since the middle ages so it’s high time we give this time some well-deserved spotlight.

The 12 days of Christmas – The Song

Who doesn’t find themselves humming this Christmas classic at one point or another during the holiday season? You know how it goes –

On the first day of Christmas,

my true love sent to me

The earliest known version first appeared in a 1780 children’s book called Mirth Without Mischief. (The first edition of that book sold for $23,750 at a Sotheby’s auction in 2014, but you can also buy a digital copy on Amazon.) Some historians think the song could be French in origin, but most agree it was designed as a “memory and forfeits” game, in which singers tested their recall of the lyrics and had to award their opponents a “forfeit” — a kiss or a favour of some kind — if they made a mistake.

What started off as a fun challenge turned out to be quite difficult because our team was spoilt for choice. We were looking for 12 Bdesign blog worth brands which could replace each of the 12 days. These top 12 have made it to our list. Fancy singing along?
