Here is what they have to go along with the Pear Tree Digital kit to show how it goes along with CHRISTmas (this is taken from there site).

This week's challenge is hosted my Susan Godfrey, from Simply Susan Designs and features the first verse:

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

I know, I had a hard time figuring out how a partridge and a pear tree could represent anything scriptural, so I was surprised to learn that you really can tie them to Scripture.

THE PARTRIDGE: The partridge in a pear tree is Christ Jesus upon the Cross. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge because she would feign injury to decoy a predator away from her nestlings. She was even willing to die for them.

THE PEAR TREE: The tree is the symbol of the fall of the human race through the sin of Adam and Eve. It is also the symbol of its redemption by Jesus Christ on the tree of the Cross.

MY TRUE LOVE: True Love refers to God

For a limited time, you can download this digital mini kit for FREE

Very cool page, and thanks for explaining the symbolism. I'd never have picked up on the partridge as Christ, but of course it makes perfect sense!

I always look so forward to each and every one of your posts. You find the greatest sites. Your creation with this download is so beautiful. Great job. I just haven't done digital yet as my computer is just about out of memory and I can't download anything. Guess it is time for a new computer.
Hugs to you,Cheryl
