We all know the 12 Days of Christmas! Whether it's the annual cost of it, a rendition from Alvin & the Chipmunks, or only remembering the "5 Golden Rings" part, it's possible it was actually a secret tool to teach/learn about the Bible!

The secret code suggests that each item in the 12 Days Of Christmas song was a metaphor for a bible story.

First day: On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree," symbolizes God (true love) and Jesus Christ (the partridge).

Second day: Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.

Third day: Three French hens represented the three gifts of faith, hope and love.

Fourth day: Calling birds were the four gospels.

Fifth day: Five golden rings were the Books of Moses.

Sixth day: Geese a-laying stands for the six days of creation.

Seventh day: Swans a-swimming were the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Eighth day: Maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.

Ninth day: Ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit such as charity, peace and kindness.

Tenth day: Lords a-leaping represent the 10 Commandments.

Eleventh day: Pipers piping were the 11 apostles.

Twelfth day: Twelve drummers drumming represented the points of the Apostles Creed.
