Merry Sixth Day of Christmas!

The Sixth Day of Christmas falls on December 30th.
The gift on the Sixth Day of Christmas is Six Geese a Laying.
The eggs of the geese hold the promise of fertility and life to come; which reflects the maintenance and expansion of God’s creation. Six geese a laying represent the six days of creation.

1st Day: Creation of light and its separation from darkness

2nd Day: Creation of the firmament and division of the waters

3rd Day: Collection of waters (sea) and formation of dry land (earth); creation of plants according to their own likeness

4th Day: Creation of heavenly bodies in the firmament (sun, moon, and stars)

5th Day: Creation of sea creatures and winged fowl from the waters

6th Day: Creation of cattle, creeping things, and beasts from the dry land; creation of mankind, male and female

Merry 6th Day of Christmas
We love you all!
