ModCloth’s 12 Day of Christmas

Moofia Action Figures

 On the eighth day of Christmas, my mod love gave to me…eight Moofia Action Figures a-milking. (And by “a-milking” we really mean “a-resembling vessels which contain milk or dairy products.”)

A bit of “12 Days of Christmas” trivia today:  there is acutally no such creature as a “calling bird.” The fourth verse, now commonly recited as “four calling birds” was originally “four collie birds–” “collie” or “colly” being a synonym for “blackbird” in sixteenth and seventeenth century England. Why give blackbirds? It was a common food at the time. (Recall the lyrics to “Sing a Song of Sixpence.”)
