12 Days of South African Christmas

A Cheesy Christmas Ditty – December 2013

On the twelfth Day of Christmas, my true love shared with me..

 Twelve vuvuzelas sounding

Eleven languages chattering

Ten springboks springing

Nine rhinos charging

Eight boerewors braai-ing

Seven swimmers swimming

Six bolts of lightning

Five cape wines

Four hadedas*

Three crowned cranes*

Two weaver birds*

and

An el-e-phant on safari!

Hadedas, Weavers and Blue Cranes are all local birds – more about them soon.
