The reality behind the song: PARTRIDGE

On the First day of Christmas my TRUE LOVE sent to me, A partridge in a pear tree!

A familiar song this Christmas entitle,  “12 days of Christmas”. Ever since a child we sing this song a million times even its pronunciation is quite bad, FURTRIDTZ, FLOURTRITS, FARTIDS, etc., and the meaning of that word is still mystery to me. What the hell is that word? After many years of curiosity and ALAS! I know what it is.
