Merry Christmas poll: The actual 'Twelve Days of Christmas'

December 25, 2010 |  7:00 am

Christmas Day is finally here. To cap off the Twelve Days of Christmas Flash Mobs series, Culture Monster thought a poll might be in order.

First, let's review our Flash Mob adventures:

We started in the food court of a Canadian mall, then hit a Pittsburgh grocery store before going straight to London for a danstravaganza at an East London train station.

After stopping at home quickly to play the lottery in Los Angeles, we caught some drops of golden sun at a Belgian train station, saw a banana hammock on the beach near Sydney, came back to Belgium for an airport lovefest, went on to a Lisbon airport to party like it was 1994 and then spun the dreidel in Jerusalem.

We joined the Salvation Army in New York and stopped for lunch in a Connecticut mall before heading back to Heathrow to spread some Christmas cheer to all the travelers.

That's more than 56,000 miles. Whew!

But all that got us to thinking about the actual "Twelve Days of Christmas." We found four versions we liked, a little something for all tastes. Vote below on your favorite. Or feel free to add more in the comments.

1. L.A. Opera's own Plácido Domingo with Norwegian soprano Sissle

2. Straight No Chaser

3. Julie Andrews and The King's Singers

4. Frank Kelly's Christmas Countdown
