For the 9th day of Christmas, maybe, if this is how it’s counted, from poetryfoundation.org. And, a happy belated Hanukkah, and a happy upcoming Kwanzaa!

from The Twelve Days of Christmas / by Anonymous

The ninth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Nine drummers drumming,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five gold rings,
Four colly birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree.
