12 Days of Christmas Video

This video is all over the mom blogs. It's the twelve most common things a stranger says to unusually large families set to the 12 Days of Christmas.

It's sung by a family with seven kids, who aren't apparently Catholic (One of the common accusations against large families).

It really resonates with me because I'm the oldest in a family with 10 kids and have heard my mom field all of these "stranger comments" - even from friends and family. With my parents included, we had enough people for each person to hold a card for each day of the 12 days of Christmas without doubling up. (H/T to Barbara Curtis)
