But how well do you know the 12 Days Of Christmas? We're here to make sure you don't mix up your maids, drummers and lords this festive season.
What are the lyrics to The 12 Days Of Christmas?
Traditionally the song starts with just the first lines: "On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: a Partridge in a Pear Tree."
Then those lines are repeated, amending the day of Christmas from first to second, adding on the next day with each repetition.
So next it would be: "On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree."
And next it would be: "On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree."
The whole song ends up on the twelfth day with:
On the twelfth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
Ten Lords a Leaping
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids a Milking
Seven Swans a Swimming
Six Geese a Laying
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree
