On the 8th Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: eight maids a-milking,

seven swans a-swimming,

six geese a-laying,

five golden rings,

four calling birds,

three french hens,

two turtle doves,

and a partridge in a pear tree.

Miss Marple

To symbolize the gift on the eighth day of Christmas (eight maids a-milking) we selected a very famous maid, Miss Marple.



Agatha Christie created some of the best known investigators, and Miss Marple hardly needs an introduction. I absolutely love the books about Miss Marple, and I appreciate how she does not look like your typical detective. Despite that she solves murder mysteries wherever she goes. She lives in the fictional St. Mary Mead in England, and appears in twelve novels and twenty short stories.
