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 8
On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me,
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.


Errrrrrr, cheese, sorry.

Good luck!
