Catholic meaning of the 12 Days of Christmas

Dec 22, 2011

Holiday music is practically inescapable and many songs commercialize the true meaning of Christmas.  

But one song  was actually written in England in 1780 as a catechism lesson to teach young Catholics about their faith.

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley talks with Father Czeslaw Krysa, director of Worship for the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo and rector of St. Casimir's Oratory.  He takes us through what Roman Catholics believe are the origins of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
