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 12
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me,
12 drummers drumming,
11 pipers piping,
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.


At last! The final quiz! And we're going to bow out with a selection of questions on holiday songs!
We hope you enjoyed each and every one of these 12 quizzes.

Good luck!
