About the Waterford 12 Days of Christmas Series (source: Waterford literature).First published about 1780, this folk carol celebrates the festivities of the Twelve Days, the days between December 25 and Epiphany, January 6th, when the three Magi presented the first Christmas gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. During the Middle Ages, nobles and peasants alike sought to extend the joyous Christmas celebration from just one day to all twelve, and gift-giving on each of the twelve days was not unusual. In celebration of the charming carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, each year an ornament, bell, and plate were added to Waterford's series of designs.
Each design symbolizes the popular lyrics of the song. A Partridge in a Pear Tree. About Waterford (source: Waterford Website). Founded by William and George Penrose, Waterford was established in the heart of the Irish harbor town of Waterford in 1783.
