"The Twelve Days of Christmas" was written in England as one of the "catechism songs" to help young Catholics learn the tenets of their faith
This pops up every year. The funny thing is, the so-called hidden meanings (with the possible exception of one of the two seven meanings) are not uniquely Catholic. The English reformers who outlawed Catholicism embraced every one of the "hidden" doctrines.

I am aware of this. Unfortunately this part of English history turned out to be a very unhappy one for both the Church of England, the Anglicans, as well as the Catholics.
Praises that we have come so much closer!
