Twelve Days of Janeite Christmas

Happy Christmas, to all who celebrate! For those looking for a bit of last minute shopping advice, there is always Jane for inspiration.

On the first day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me one stately house at Pemberley.

On the second day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me two grey ponies from Edmund Bertram and a stately house at Pemberley.

On the third day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me three mended pens from Miss Bingley, two grey Bertram ponies, and a stately house at Pemberley.

On the fourth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me: four calling cards from Lady Catherine, three mended pens from Miss Bingley, two grey Bertram ponies, and a stately house at Pemberley.

On the fifth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (with Lucy Steele’s hair in them because I’m spineless Edward Ferrars), etcetera, etcetera…

On the sixth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me six rakes a-lying, FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (with Lucy Steele’s hair in them), etcetera, etcetera…

On the seventh day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me seven Darcys in white shirts a swimming  seventy notifications on Twitter reminding me that this scene is not in the book.

On the eighth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me eight milk white steeds I can’t afford to keep from Willoughby.

On the ninth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me nine lords and ladies dancing WHICH IS TOTALLY IN ALL OF THE BOOKS, OKAY?

On the tenth day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me ten Mr. Woodhouses leaping to leave a Christmas party way too early.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, a true Janeite gave to me eleven tours of Lyme Regis, etcetera, etcetera.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, true Janeite gifted to me a lovely brunch… that I’ll have to pay for, because Lydia spent all her money on a bonnet instead.

Come to think of it, if looking for Jane Austen-themed gifts, it might just be best just to go with a nice book, mug, or t-shirt.
