Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
— Norman Vincent Peele
 

Perhaps the beauty in the holiday season is not what we see but what we imagine and remember. Even the Grinch and Scrooge feel a bit uneasy surrounded by the joy and lessons at year end and the hope and promise of the new year. The history of the Christmas song lies in religious messages which includes mention of animals and natural environments. We love the song not only because it's catchy but because of the joy it brings when sung aloud with others. Join us as we work to make the joy of Christmas a every day reality for animals in need of a loving forever home. Remember the animals known as "the neighborhood pet" ( animals who may be "looked after"  but whom are not formally adopted and live on the street.  Learn more about The Twelve Days of Christmas from: Wiki / Mental Floss

On the nineth day of christmas my true love sent to me

Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree

Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree
