The Twelve Days of Housemates ~ A Holiday Poem from Silvernest

By December 19, 2016Lifestyle

Hey there, Silvernesters! This year I decided to have some fun, and remake a classic Christmas carol most of us had to memorize in elementary school- the Twelve Days of Christmas – in honor of our happy housemates.

Forgive our corny bent- but try to sing the tune in your head while reading along. Enjoy a few giggles, and perhaps it will trigger some fun ideas for you and your housemate to share while enjoying the winter season. Ready? Here we go!
