Wistariahurst Presents Historical Lecture:“Decoding the Twelve Days of Christmas”

Monday November 26, 2012 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Wistariahurst will host a Presentation & Book Signing with Dr. Tom Bernard, author of “Decoding the Twelve Days of Christmas”.  The popular Christmas song is usually sung with great gusto – but with almost no understanding of what it’s all about!  Thomas Bernard, author of The Twelve Days of Christmas: The Mystery and the Meaning will elaborate on his theory that the song lyrics reveal a series of instructions that guided the pilgrims of the Middle Ages on their journey from England to Jerusalem.  Dr. Bernard is a retired professor whose career has spanned over 50 years and has included work on five different continents.  Of the more than 100 books and articles which Bernard has authored or co-authored, The Twelve Days of Christmas is especially dear to him.  He feels it is the first serious attempt that has been made to truly understand the hidden meaning of the popular Christmas carol.  Learn more at this lecture and book signing.  Suggested donation $5
