MTed Twelve Days of Christmas-for teaching catechism? (57* d) RE: Twelve Days of Christmas 22 Dec 99


Joe.

If you'd like to download, the Baltimore Catechism is here, and yes, one day soon, I'll remember how to do the blue clicky thing--

http://www.catholic.net/rcc/Catechism/download/download.html

The I had the other catechism somewhere, but haven't been able to find them again--at any rate, I wasn't saying that the things I mentioned weren't part of teachings, I was just giving them as examples of what may have varied from one catechism to another--I am not even sure exactly which items it was--

At any rate, someone else mentioned somewhere that Christmas was made illegal by the puritans for a time, which meant that singing a christmas song would have gotten you in as much trouble as anything else--

And if, as someone mentioned, the roots of the song are French, then it shoots the arguement there, as well..
