The Thirteen Days of Christmas

 I have this book on my Christmas shelf that I must have ordered last year. It is delightful. 

" St. Stephen's Day was the only day of the year on which all the boys in the town were up well before seven. It was still dark when the streets rang with their shrill hopeful whistling for snow. A snowball fight was the best of all St. Stephen's Day battles...."

Romance, a wealthy man woes his love  with the Twelve Days of Christmas , all set to the  Twelve Days of Christmas. I won't tell you about how he got 3 French hens  or 3 turtledoves! Maybe it is in your library. I highly recommend it. You will chuckle.
