On The 10th Day of Christmas...

my true love sent to me,

10 Lords A-Leaping

These dancers were most likely Morris dancers who performed leaping dances between courses at feasts.  It is a form of ancient folk dancing & the dancers wore all sorts of bells on their tights and were very lively jumping all over the place then tried to get those 9 ladies to dance with them.  Not really.

The biblical association for this verse is easy; the 10 Commandments.

Your devotion for the 10th day of Christmas is right here!
