On the First Day of Christmas

A Partridge in a Pear Tree

The song is in part a reference to the gifts that the wisemen brought. Composer Frederic Austin transformed the folk story into a song and nursery rhyme. In today’s hurried world, it may not seem like we always have time for simple songs or nursery games, but by putting today’s technology to work, we just might be able to take back some of the precious moments in our busy lives.

There’s plenty of technology that can make our time in the kitchen a little easier. We now have refrigerators that can keep inventory and help create our grocery lists. There are ranges, washers and dryers that can be controlled by smartphones. Apple, Amazon and Google technology can help us organize the kitchen chaos and even serenade us with a simple song about A partridge in a pear tree!  So set aside a couple minutes, sit with someone you love, and ask Alexa or Siri to sing to you about the 12 Days of Christmas.
