How To Go to Work as Each of The Twelve Days of Christmas!

[A repost from two years ago.]

Ring! Ring!

Want to spread so much holiday cheer this year your boss is sure to commend you for it? Show up to work every day for twelve days in a row dressed like a different character from "The Twelve Days of Christmas"!! Here are some simple costume ideas to help you make this classic carol come alive for you, your co-workers, and all the people sure to point and stare at you on the street.

Partridge in pear tree: Cut your hair in the fun uni-shag style that David Cassidy so rocked on the old Partridge Family TV show. Fill your pockets with pears and tree bramble. Done. (While around your slower co-workers, you may want to sing the PF hit "I Think I Love You!" to make sure they're not confused about what you're doing.)

Turtle dove: Buy about a dozen of those little pet store turtles. Put some Super Glue on their shells. Attach turtles to clothes. Then put on a long-sleeve shirt, cover your arms with Elmer's glue, and jam both arms into a down pillow you've cut open. Go.

French hen: Don a beret. Say nothing but "wee-wee!" all day. Put eggs in all your pockets.

Calling birds: Attach feathers to clothes. Spend day phoning co-workers.

Golden ring: Cover every inch of your body and clothing gold spray paint. Put your cell phone in your pocket. Program your desk phone to continuously call your cell phone. Don't answer it.

Geese a-laying: Attach feathers to clothes. Lie on floor.

Swan a-swimming: Attach feathers to clothes. Fill up break room sink with water. While making loud honking noises, splash everyone who walks by.

Maid a-milking: Skip this one. No need to act unprofessionally.

Lady dancing: Wig and fake breasts optional for guys. Flowing skirt not.

Lord a-leaping: Dress as much as possible like this guy:

Jump a lot.

Piper piping: Bring a bunch of pipe to work. Pretend to be installing it around everyone's desk and cubicle.

Drummer drumming: Bring a drum of your own, or bring drumsticks and drum on everything in the office.
