Welcome to the 12 Days of Xmas Quizzes. We're going to give you a quiz a day, each related (often loosely related) to a line of the song "12 Days Of Christmas". No prizes though, it's just for fun!

Day 10
On the tenth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me,
10 lords a leaping,
9 ladies dancing,
8 maids a milking,
7 swans a swimming,
6 geese a laying,
5 golden rings,
4 calling birds,
3 French hens,
2 turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.


You don't often see lords a leaping these days, they're pretty much history. And so is this quiz!

Good luck!
