The Twelve Days of Christmas - Southwest Florida Style


12DaysOfChristmasSWFLAOn The News-Press Facebook Page, there was a wonderful post on Tuesday which people were asked to come up with their versions of the Twelve Days of Christmas. These were the three posted on the page (the final two of which were considered for print in The News-Press today) 


From ScottandLaura BL:

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve Everblades Games,
Eleven Norman Love Chocolates,
Ten Broadway Palm Shows,
Nine hours fishing,
Eight games of Red Sox,
Seven gators swimming,
Six shells from Sanibel,
Five rounds of golf,
Four nights on Captiva,
Three snook a biting,
Two Miracles tickets,
And a heron in a palm tree!

From Danny D-boy Davis:

12 fisherman fishing
11 dolphins jumping
10 parasailers
9 ladies tanning
8 miles of traffic
7 tourist swimming
6 Seagals squawking
5 oooo'clock somewhere
4 sand castles
3 um-brellas
2 sea Turtles
And a pelican in a palm tree

From Lisa Sobon Martin (the one printed in the paper):

On The Twelfth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me - 12 Snowbirds Driving, 11 Sea Turtles Nesting, 10 Spring Break Partiers, 9 Tanners Tanning, 8 Months of A/C, 7 Miles of Traffic, 6 Months of Hurricanes, 5 Traffic Lights per Mile, 4 Speed Boats Racing, 3 Football Teams, 2 Joggers Jogging and a Green Parrot in a Royal Palm

I will be monitoring the page, and if any others are posted, I will place them here in other entries.
