The 12 Days of a Twitter Christmas

You’ve undoubetdly heard the famous Christmas song “The 12 Days of Christmas,” but here’s a new version of it I wrote to get into the spirit of the coming holiday season: The 12 Days of a Twitter Christmas.

I would sing it for you via recorded video, but I think Matt Lauer and Al Roker have proven that you shouldn’t record a music video if you can’t sing – regardless of auto-tuning and studio enhancing!

So sing along to the tune of the “12 Days of Christmas”
