The Twelve days of Christmas is a nicely paced song with a good amount of repetition. Half of the words however are not fantastic ("Eight maids a-milking," for example), so it might be good to alter some parts.


The class can be split up into 3 or 4 groups, with the different groups singing different parts of the song. Everyone sings the "On the xth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me" part. Group "A" sings "A partridge in a pear tree", group "B" sings "two turtle doves," etc.
