Michael CowleyMerry Christmas to all of you out there in "Mikes World". I hope you and yours are doing well this Christmas season and you are prepared for the holiday season that is upon us once again.  

 

Anne and I decided (well actually it was her idea if you don't like it and mine if you do) to have a little fun with this newsletter and tip of the month (little being the key word). So, we put together the "Bubba and Skeeter" version of the 12 days of Christmas. We provide the lyrics and challenge anyone out there to put it to music, record, and send it to us. If you take on this challenge we will give it a home on our website (at least until the New Year).

 

The twelve days in the original song starts on Christmas Day or, in some traditions, the day after Christmas. The origin and the meaning is unknown but they suspect it is from a child's memory and forfeit game (whatever that is?).   

 

Merry Christmas and all the best to you and your family.

Mike
