My kids have fallen in love with the song "The 12 Days of Christmas." As I put the song on their various devices and CDs for the car, I found that there are way more versions of the song than I ever knew. I gathered up 12 of them here.

There are two great versions on the list, seven good ones, three that are just OK, and one extra to make it twelve.
