The Sixth Day of Christmas

By December 19, 2012

Follow me on:

We're halfway through our series connecting bird families to the 12 Days of Christmas, and it is surprising how many bird families can be part of seasonal celebrations.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Six geese a-laying.

Whether they're adults or goslings, all geese are part of the Anatidae bird family, the same family that includes ducks and swans. And what could be more perfect than geese a-laying - increasing the size of the family to celebrate the holidays with?

How big is your holiday family, avian or otherwise? Share your family gathering tips in the comments!
