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 7
On the seventh day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me,
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.


Swimming gives us an excuse for a sports quiz!

Good luck!
