The 12 Days of Wild Christmas: Day Twelve

New, comment

Today, on Christmas no less, we finish up our little song. We truly hope you have enjoyed the series, and we would like to extend a very warm Merry Christmas to everyone out in the Wilderness who celebrates the day. Also a very pleasant Saturnalia.

We made it through all twelve days without offending anyone too much for using the Twelve Days of Christmas tune in this project. As we have shown, we have searched far and wide for a Twelve Days of (Fill in Holiday Here), but it turns out there still is no The Twelve Days of Inti Raymi. I know, I was surprised as well. Still, apparently the Incas had little desire to sing really annoying songs about birds and people doing strange things.

For today's verse... make the jump, would you?

Since some people are still missing the tune somehow, here is the original version. You brought it on yourselves.

And today's verse:

On the twelfth day of Wild Christmas, the Wild gave to me:

Twelve wins for Backstrom, eleven shots per game, ten years of hockey, the ninth draft position, eight remaining teeth, SEVEN years of Mikko, six draft busts, NOOOOO STANLEY CUP RINGS!!! Four blind officials, three fightin' Finns, two periods of actual hockey, and an owner who keeps gnashing his teeth.
