While following the star and traveling to bring their gifts to the Christ Child, each day the Wisemen will have a symbol from the carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” with them to explain the meaning of each symbol in the carol. Click here for a full description of this series of posts.

On the Seventh Day of Christmas my true love gave to me seven swans a-swimming.

Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit—–Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
