Ornament Parade 2006 Day 6

This is one of 12 ornaments in a 12 Days of Christmas collection. I have the glasses too. I love the 12 Days of Christmas. At one time in history this was used to tell the story of the Christ who came to save us from our sins. It was a way for Christians to celebrate the so called "pagan" holiday incorporating the true meaning without getting in trouble by the religious leaders of the day. I have a book with the meaning of each day. This is the two turtledoves which was the sacrifice of the poor after the 8 days of a male child's birth. Mary and Joseph were poor and this is what they took to the temple for cleansing.
