12 Days Of Books Singing

So apparently I am in a completely irreverent mood this holiday season and am enjoying all the fun ways we can morph the traditions to suit our individual selves.  To that end, if you are sick of hearing the original 12 Days of Christmas, here are some literary alternatives.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, the Owl Post brought to me
Twelve veela dancing (Happy Christmas, indeed!)
Eleven Slyth'rins scheming
Ten points from Gryffindor
Nine folks named Weasley
Eight books by Lockhart
Seven years at Hogwarts
Six Quidditch teammates
Five golden snitches
Four Hogwarts Houses
Three Dursleys
Two best friends
And a new sweater under the tree

On the twelfth day of Christmas a wizard gave to me, 
Twelve Elves of Lorien, 
eleven gems from Moria, 
ten of Gandalf's fireworks,
 nine Fellowship members,
 eight talking trees, 
seven men of Rohan, 
six smelly orcs, 
five undead Wraiths,
 four little hobbits, 
three lembas bread,
 two sons of Gondor 
and one ring to rule them all. 

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Twelve ‘Spiders’ spying, 
Eleven loyal liege-men,
Ten banners flying, 
Nine armies marching,
Eight holds a-keeping, 
Seven Gods to worship,
Six maidens waiting,
 Five warring kings!
Four pigeon pies, 
Three dragon eggs,
Two twins in sin,
And a throne that was very bloody.

Anybody else know of anymore?  Let me know and we will have the whole world singing along with these booky versions of a beloved carol.  Happy Reading Everybody!
