Christmas feels like it's starting earlier and earlier every year.

To celebrate, here are the lesser-known verses of the misnamed Twelve Days of Christmas to get you in the spirit.

The songbook has 50,603 words.

Note every line whose day ends with a 5 is similar to everyone's favourite five gold rings.

If you were to start the song so as to finish on Christmas, you'd need to start on 13th July. Or, as the original song is traditionally begun on Christmas and ends on twelfth night (5th January), then one hundred and sixty fifth night is 7th June.

The song-writer was clearly obsessed with ancient european tribes...
