Have a wonderful Swans a swimming day.  Unless you have Squabs swimming,  Not sure what  to say about that, but have a great day with the swimming birds regardless.

The swans are allegedly the most expensive part of the gifts by today's standards. I would be curious how that opinion accounts for all of the various personnel yet to come.

Also, do the Lords a-leaping have to be actual nobility, or can you hire actors?

I think they have to be actual nobility, but the can be SCA nobles.

Meh, Superbowl champions one year; in spite of what Stephen Colbert says, they don't seem like much of a threat.

Yeah, I'm not sure what "bears a beating" means, but it might have made more sense in 1900 when that version was published.  Checking the wiki notes, it's from a 1800's source.  Still no clue what it means.

It's the 11th day Christmas. In addition to the repeat gifts Your True Love gave you today, the canon gift is 11 eleven pipers piping. Other gifts include 11 Ladies dancing, 11 Ladies spinning, 11 Lords a-leading, 11 Dancers a-dancing, and 11 Lads a-louping. In the non human options we have 11 Badgers baiting and 11 Bulls a-beating.

My Christmas present is finally arriving today. There was a miscommunication and some scaling back done due to costs, but it was finally ordered: a Google Pixel 6. Someone will be dispatched to my house to do the setup and transfer from my old Samsung J7 for me today between 10am and 12pm - at no charge. I got a sweet deal through AT&T's Customer Loyalty department.

It's still within the Feast of Christmas, so it's not technical late.   Got a whole day to go.

He must or Annie wouldn't say it so much.  Or maybe that was her way of having a slight bit of rebellion.

It's the 12th or last day of Christmas.  In addition to all the repeat gifts Your True Love gave you, today's canon gift is 12  drummers drumming.  There are some options here, for example you could get 12 Lords a leaping, 12 Fiddlers a-fiddling or 12 Ladies dancing.  The only non human option seems to be Bells a ringing.  I hope you had a Merry Christmas season if you do that sort of thing, otherwise I hope the last 12 days didn't suck.  It's now time to take down your Christmas tree if you have one.

Tulsa did that.  Big fire in one of the parks near the river.  I suspect that tradition didn't survive the pandemic, but then again, Oklahoma.

Not only is it time to take down the tree, many communities & congregations would gather them for a bonfire to celebrate the end of the season & the eve of Epiphany

Putting our tree on a fire would not be a good idea, as it's a plastic tree with built in fiber-optics.
