Without looking them up can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? How about the Twelve Days of Christmas?
When I first put this list of Christmas questions together I went through both lists and could name them. We’re 3 weeks into the Christmas season and surely we’ve all heard both songs by now. As I’m writing this I’ve quickly come to realize I can not remember anything! I’ve listed my horrible answers below but first I’ve added a few photos to give you all a moment to think of your answers!
Every year Santa lends out a couple of his reindeer to a nursery in Fort Collins. They stay until Christmas Eve, presumably because they have a busy night ahead of them. 😉 We go out to see them and take lots of pictures. I have an obsession with taking pictures of the same animal repeatedly.
Dasher, Dancer, Blizten (I always want to call him Blitzer), Prancer, Rudolph, Vixen…Okay I’m up to six.
The 12 days of Christmas
On the twelfth day of Catmess, my true love gave to me, twelve rodents roasting, eleven prawns with pasta, ten bugs in butter, nine lox for licking, eight squirrel Schnitzels, seven swans-a-simmering, six geese in gravy, five pheasant wings, four broiled birds, three fried hens, two turtle stews and a partridge with some nip tea.

I can remember most of the “things” but not which number to which they belong. I fear I’ve failed miserably! The ones in italic I’m certain are wrong.
Twelve …. I have nothing!
Eleven lords a-leaping
Ten drummers drumming
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
One partridge in a pear tree!
Wow that was really bad! Even when I sing the songs my mind has added the blanks as actual parts of the song!
How did the rest of you do?
