There were 9 ladies dancing into the arms of true love on the ninth day of Blogmas…
Welcome to the ninth installment of The 12 Days of Blogmas, an exploration into the hidden meanings behind true love’s Christmas gifts from The 12 Days of Christmas. In just three days’ time, Christmas dinner preparations will be well underway, and households everywhere will be feeling the festive cheer of Christmas Day.
On the ninth day of Christmas, the tempo was upped and nine dancing ladies were sent as a token of true love. A follow-up to the hard-working eight maids a-milking of the previous day, the nine ladies dancing represent the Christmas revelry that we have all come to know and love.Even those who don’t celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday find it hard to escape the party-going of the festive season.
In particular, Christmas Eve and Boxing Day have been transformed into big events in the dancing and drinking calendar with many venues throwing huge parties on both evenings. Is Christmas Day the perfect day for a hangover? While you might think the answer is yes, I would argue no, although it may be the only day of the year that we find it acceptable to drink champagne from morning till night. The graft that goes into preparing and serving a traditional British Christmas dinner (on average, Christmas dinner takes 4.3 hours) is not an enjoyable experience after a late night, so if you’re on cooking duty on the 25th, I’d go easy on Christmas Eve.
I’m sure there will be more than nine ladies dancing after a few Christmas beverages on this fine ninth day of Blogmas as people begin to let their hair down to join in the festive spirit. Christmas markets have been popping up across the country over the past month, with live music, fairground rides and festive drinks for adults and children alike to enjoy.
