On the First Day of Christmas, the gift of true love was a partridge in a pear tree. Why so?
Welcome to the 12 days of Blogmas. Before you say anything, I know that the 12 Days of Christmas fall after the 25th; however, Blogmas falls just before. For the next 12 days, the UK2 blog is receiving a Christmassy makeover as we count down to Santa’s arrival.
So we all hopefully know that on the first day of Christmas, our singer/songwriter received a partridge in a pear tree from their true love. Now, there are plenty of reasons that one may receive a bird or a tree on Christmas, and many theories as to why the partridge sat in the pear tree at all, but I’m going to take a little look at what it means to today’s society.
If you ask the majority of millennials, I’m pretty sure that they will have no idea of why anyone would want a partridge in a pear tree this Christmas. That is most likely because the wish list they sent to Santa included an iPad, a new bicycle and the Frozen DVD. However, there may be a few out there who have the answer: Urban Dictionary defines a partridge in a pear tree as ‘an unbelievably cool person’.
Your business’s marketing efforts over the Christmas period could benefit from this outside-the-box thinking. You could take a leaf out of the Urban Dictionary’s book and get creative with traditional methods. Millennials appear to have the power to make anything current. Maybe a ‘partridge in a pear tree’ (in the UD definition of the term) could benefit your business this Christmas and beyond.
Taking on an intern can benefit your business in a plethora of ways – don’t write them off as just a bird sat in a tree.
