Merry Christmas & "The Wine Lovers Twelve Days of Christmas!"

My husband Steve and I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! May your day be filled with fabulous family, friends, food and wine. I also wanted to share with you "The Wine Lovers Twelve Days of Christmas," an alternate and fun version of this Christmas classic. I first saw it on a tea towel I found at Sur La Table - gotta love that store!

"A Wine Lover's Twelve Days of Christmas"
1. A Pinot Noir in a Pear Tree
2. Two Toasting Friends
3. Three French Blends
4. Four Hearty Cabernets
5. Five Sparkling Wines
6. Six Corkscrews Turning
7. Seven Sommeliers Serving
8. Eight Charming Chardonnays
9. Nine Vines a-Winding
10. Ten Snobs Sniffing
11. Eleven Casks a-Corking
12. Twelve Fabulous Toasts

Tonight, after my sister cooks a wonderful Christmas feast, my family will be singing the original version of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" after we each draw a "day" out of a hat. We then have to put our signature spin on our "day" - believe me, there's alot of pressure on whoever gets "Five Golden Rings!" It usually gets pretty creative, especially after a few glasses of wine. Do you have any fun, family traditions you enjoy over the holidays? Cheers to a magical day!


  1. Oh, I love this 12 Days of Christmas for wine lovers! So creative and fun. We don't have a tradition like yours. the game sounds like so much fun!

    Merry Christmas Stephanie and Steve!

  2. This sounds like a lot of fun. I love your husband's pants and wish mine would agree to wear something this cool :)


  3. Stephanie! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND ENJOY A LOVELY NEW YEAR! I love your opening 12 days of Christmas! teeeheee.....HEY! You are someone that would appreciate my joy.....on Christmas day, we enjoyed an unusual but surprisingly wonderful taste....CHOCOLATE WINE from the Netherlands! WOOOOO HOOOOO was that a sweet little after dinner treat. Also, what do you recommend for making a good Coq au vin? Obviously white, but any suggestions?


  4. Such a cute idea, Stephanie. You'll have to let us know what someone came up with for Five Golden Rings!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both....the preppiest couple I know!

  5. Happy New Year Stephanie. Thanks for a year of knowledge and fun provided through your blog. Looking forward to following you where you're going in 2011. Cheers!
