I know about the story* about the song being a code used by persecuted catholics in 15th-16th century England.
However, during a discussion about hidden messages in nursery rhymes, one person mention that the song, “12 days of Christmas”, means “something”.
I mentioned the story about the persecuted catholics, but the person dismissed it and said it meant something else.
So were there any other legends about the “12 days of Christmas” song?
*I know that the story is an urban legend but it was just a disscussion
