Twelve Days of Christmas & 12 annoying gifts from Rheumatoid disease
I had to take pictures when I found this wrapping paper in a store to show my son Tiger who loves rap music. The words printed on the “Rapping Paper” are from Rapper’s Delight by Sugarhill Gang, the first hip-hop single to become a Top 40 hit. The favorite album at our house at Christmas-time is Christmas in Diverse City by tobyMac, the greatest rapper of Christian lyrics and one of the most popular artists today.
While Rapper’s Delight was the first rapping hit, there have always been chanting and story-telling songs. The Twelve Days of Christmas is one that has endured centuries of changes and speculation. I hope this version about Rheumatoid disease brings you a smile.
Rheumatoid disease is a more accurate way to refer to the disease often called Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA. Rheumatoid disease leads to inflamed joints and many secondary conditions such as arthritis (osteoarthritis), osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, vasculitis, Sjögren’s syndrome, and more, as well as symptoms related to persistent systemic inflammation.
