The Twelve Days ofChristmas 2

December 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The second day of Christmas my true love gave to me: 

Two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.

I learned that we don't have turtle doves in the US. They are a British and European bird. We do have mourning doves, which my father called rain crows. He did this because they would coo before it rained, telling us the weather would change. 

They have nothing to do with turtles either. The name turtle is a distortion of their name of turtur referring to the sound they make. Fascinating, what picking up a song that wont stop playing in your head will do. 2.TWO TURTLE DOVES2.TWO TURTLE DOVES
