10th Day of Christmas

 10th Day of Christmas - January 3

10 Lords A-Leaping
Traditional / Catechetical Remembrance*: 
The Ten Commandments

Saints for January 3:

* The "Catechetical remembrance" is likely a myth - it was said that the 12 Days of Christmas song was to help children remember their catechism - but the "gifts" do not really have any memorable link to what they are supposed to represent. Another story is that while Catholics were being persecuted in England, they would sing this song at Christmastide to help remember the tenets of their faith - but again, such a "code" makes little sense.
