Constructed around the gifts of the twelve days of Christmas described in the well known medieval carol. It is the story of how Tib, a young lady, finally ends up marrying Simon, the bird seller, in the right way instead of the way her scheming, domineering mother had planned it. The popular carol is sung throughout the play. No scenery is required and needs only three benches. It has no religious connotations and can be performed by all kinds of groups.
