The 12 Days of Christmas

This time of year, Christmas songs are everywhere. But, how many times can we sing, "and a partridge in a pear tree"? I think it's time to put a fresh spin on the classic tune. Eight maids of milking was great, but we'd prefer 12 days of dairy!

Here's our list for the '12 Days of Christmas'. You know the tune, so feel free to sing along! So, on the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

A Jersey in a Santa Hat

2 Flutes of Milk

3 Smiling Princesses

4 Toasted Marshmallows

5 Creamy Milkshakes

6 Butter People Playing

7 Cities Fueling Up

8 Maids of Milking

9 Essential Nutrients

10 Gallon Challenge

11 Chocolate Chip Cookies

12 Hours a Day of Lounging
