when i deck the halls
i see why 'tis the season
we must be jolly

The original Christmas carols were about the birth of Jesus. It wasn't until much, much later that Santa Claus entered the equation. The first Christmas song to mention Santa Claus was Benjamin Hanby's “Up on The Housetop.” Written in 1864, Hanby was inspired by Clement Moore's 1823 poem “A Visit from Saint Nicholas.”

Welcome to the Thirteenth year celebrating  The Twelve Days Of Christmas here at Lunch Break; since this celebration is collaborative, i will be updating posts throughout the day

The theme of this year's celebration is "Deck The Halls"
