This is a really neat idea! Will you be adding to it to complete the 12 Days of Christmas theme? Something to think of next year! I just posted a bunch of our family Advent pics on my blog--it's my favorite season. :)

Donna Marie

Thank you for all of this!!

Where is the download for the partridge? :o) We are looking forward to adding this to our Liturgical Year notebooks!

LeeAnn - Our family has only focused on the partridge as a symbol of the song and to represent St. Edmund Campion here at the beginning of Advent, so am not planning to finish the theme right now. I do have a mini unit study that focuses on the Twelve Days of Christmas song that we have done in the past between Dec. 25 and Jan. 5 and I will post later as we get closer to Christmas. I could add continued 12-Days craft projects that are similar if there is interest.


Oh, yes, I would very much like a copy of the partridge pattern. May I kindly ask for it? How very kind of you to offer this to us. Our Advent is coming along nicely. Thank you and God bless.

In Christ,

Wonderful, Mary! You always inspire me! I'd love to have the pattern, too.


Dear Mary Ellen,

I would be most interested in the mini unit study that focuses on the Twelve Days of Christmas song and the continued 12-Days craft projects that are similar. So far, everything that I've found at your site has been most helpful and inspiring. Thank you for this.

In Christ,


Sarah Gibson

I have just come across this webpage as I am planning what to talk to my class about during Campion Day Mass. This is a fantastic page, thank you so much for the time you have taken to set it up. I would be very interested in the mini study unit on the twelve days of Christmas and the partridge pattern, if possible.

Many thanks and God Bless,

Christmas Novena

  • Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen
