Grocery store version of the twelve days of Christmas

Art knapps in Surrey BC.....
A place where you can drink in the spirit of the season without buying a thing!
I covertly took this picture and many more to be revealed over the season!!!
HO HO HO!!!


A couple of ladies that worked at a grocer with my friend Laura decided to bring her some cheer. They reinvented the 12 Days of Christmas, and acted it out in one day!

First start humming the tune of the twelve days of Christmas....

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me Parsley in a bare tree!
They brought Laura a bare tree with parsley in it!
On the Second day of Christmas my true love gave to me two tied gloves.
A pair of gloves were tied together to look like doves
On the Third day of Christmas my true love gave to me three French Breads…..
( After all it IS a grocery store)
On the Fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me ....four calling cards
On the Fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me Five golden strings taken from the floral department...and tied in bows....ingenious eh?

One the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me Six Geese a laying
they gave her one goose and a dozen eggs.....Slightly backward on that one but it worked!
On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me Seven Swans a swimming,'
they took the swan brand serviettes and presented them floating in a pool (bowl)

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me eight maids a milking….
this is getting odd......a breast pump and four female checkers, (women who check your groceries through the register) with it. Makes for Eight breasts....Don't ask!
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me Nine ladies dancing….
one of the girls took a Large nine, held it over her head then twirled like a dancer
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me Ten gourds a leaking,
This one may offend some, working in a grocery store does weird things to a person!
Laura was given a bunch of gourds with a package of sanitary napkins.
Again
don't ask....their minds work in mysterious ways!
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me eleven pipers piping.
Laura received pipe cleaners in the shape of pipes, eleven! At least I think she got eleven....maybe not though! What a rip off!

On the Twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me ten plumbers (10 liquid plumbers) and a drum.

So there you have it a bunch of nutty minds, conglomerating to amuse and bring Christmas spirit to a woman who has chronic headaches and eczema so bad her hands bleed! And by George it worked!
