Christmas Countdown : Verse 18

6 sleeps until Christmas Eve.
6 days until Christmas Day.
6 verses left to Snowflake Kisses!

The 18th verse has math equations flowing through it sending my imagination into a numbers game. Therefore, even though eighteen doesn’t equal twelve, the common denominators from these two numbers has prompted me to select the word twelve:

Well into the 12th month of the year, six days ago, the Christmas song known as The Twelve Days of Christmas, led me to gather twelve poems which I have been delivering daily to count down my twelve snowy days before Christmas.

The 18th of December introduces the second half of this snowy countdown with a seventh poem called, Sublime Subtle Stillness. Counting down verses, days, and sleeps for the Christmas Countdown, all the while considering the inclusion of both, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I quickly realized that counting down twelve poems starting on the twelfth of December, does not lead to a Christmas Day arrival. The final poem arrives on the 23rd – the eve of Christmas Eve.

Obviously, we all know that the equation in this word clip is incorrect. One plus two, does not equal to today’s word, however, when the numbers one and two are put together, it does result in the number as it is spelled out.


How much more can there be said about the word twelve? Take 12 seconds to find out!
