The Michael Marby ornament (found here) set features 3 inch in diameter paper-mache ornaments. Using a pastel color palatte, ornaments remind viewers of the song Twelve Days of Christmas using illustrated numbers, words, animals and people

Purchasers report being highly satisfied with the ornament set, with one writing:

I bought these last year with hopes of starting a tradition in our family. My then 19 month old and I put up one ornament each of the twelve days leading up to Christmas. With every ornament that went up, we sang the corresponding verse from “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song. My daughter loved it, and it was so fun to sit around the Christmas tree and sing with my daughter on my lap. These ornaments are so beautiful and unique, I could barely contain myself from putting them all up at once! I am considering buying another set soley as a keepsake for my daughter. These are more than just pretty things to put on a tree… they are already wonderful memories for me and my family.

    “My then 19 month old and I put up one ornament each of the twelve days leading up to Christmas.” The Twelve Days of Christmas BEGIN on Christmas Day and end on the eve of Epiphany, January 6. I trust that, three years after your post, someone has explained that to you. They’re not arbitrary days. They are liturgical. Merry Christmas.
    PS I’d like to know how this pre-Christmas 12-day business got started – probably commercial marketing – but it’s wrong, and these aren’t arbitrary days to be mucked about with. It DOES matter that they have the meaning they do, and occur at the time that they do.
