Here's our ode to Christmas... Norfolk style.  Perhaps you can sing this in place of the original version when next carol singing.

The Twelve Days of a Norfolk Christmas

On the first day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
A festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the second day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the third day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the fourth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the fifth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the sixth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree. 

On the seventh day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree.

On the eighth day of Christmas, 
my true love sent to me 
Eight farmers a-ploughing, 
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree.

On the ninth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Nine Thursford girls a-dancing, 
Eight farmers a-ploughing,
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree.

On the tenth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Ten hundred new-born seal pups, 
Nine Thursford girls a-dancing, 
Eight farmers a-ploughing,
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Eleven dapper Canaries players,
Ten hundred new-born seal pups, 
Nine Thursford girls a-dancing,
Eight farmers a-ploughing,
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, 
my Norfolk love sent to me 
Twelve cosy coastal cottages, 
Eleven dapper Canaries players, 
Ten hundred new-born seal pups, 
Nine Thursford girls a-dancing,
Eight farmers a-ploughing,
Seven Holkham deer a-trotting, 
Six geese a-migrating, 
Five Sandringham Kings, 
Four pints of Woodfordes, 
Three Coleman’s mustards, 
Two Cromer Crabs,
And a festive Norwich, Jarrold shopping spree

I enjoy walking along Norfolk's beaches with my family and dog, theatre trips, dancing, laughing and knocking up a scrumptious feast for friends using local produce finished with a tipple of Norfolk Saffron's King Harry orange and saffron liqueur!
