The Twelve Days of Christmas

Crescenta Valley Version

On the 1st day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
A Common House Sparrow in an oak tree.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Two Mourning Doves, drinking from our pool.

On the 3rd day of Christmas, the foothills gave to me,
Three Red-tailed Hawks, circling above the clouds.

On the 4th day of Christmas, the foothills gave to me,
Four squawking Amazon parrots flying overhead..

On the 5th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Five Golden dogs romping at “their park.”

On the 6th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Six CVHS runners running on the local trails.

On the 7th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Seven scampering squirrels dropping pinecones.

On the 8th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Eight Rosemont students eating pizza after school.

On the 9th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
Nine ladies swimming at the Y.

On the 10th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
10 coyotes spotted in the streets.

On the 11th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,
11 devoted town council members.

On the 12th day of Christmas, our foothills gave to me,

12 drummers drumming in the Christmas Parade … and it was cold.

Winter has arrived, according to the calendar. While many parts of the U.S. are given a white Christmas, a high pressure system brings gusty offshore breezes, clear skies and above normal temperatures to us.

Why the 12 days of Christmas after Dec. 25? They refer to the days between the birth of Christ and the arrival of the Magi on Jan. 6.
So the celebration continues …
