‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for The Madison Senior Living’s culinary team to get creative for each day of festivities. As residents, family, and friends join around the table. We’ll embark on a delectable adventure. It started with the iconic partridge in a pear tree and ended with the drummers drumming. Each day will be a culinary experience that truly captures the essence of the holiday season. Every unique dish tells tales of tradition, celebration, and the spirit of togetherness.

My favorite of the 12 Days of Christmas was every day! This was my first year involved with this adventure, and I truly enjoyed it. The most challenging of the 12 Days would be day one, a partridge in a pear tree trying to find partridges, but pears are much more plentiful. 

The residents enjoy day 12, with twelve drummers drumming the most. We celebrated with a Drumstick Happy Hour that included both food and entertainment. The staff liked each day and the great dishes and desserts they brought. 

I wouldn’t make any changes to the 12 Days; they were great!

The culinary team is immersed in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth that truly brings our community together. The 12 Days of Christmas has allowed the team to explore the diverse and vibrant spectrum of flavors that make this season truly magical. Here’s to a season filled with the warmth of friendship, the sparkle of joy, and the lingering tastes of the 12 Days of Christmas. Until next year, when we get the opportunity to use our creative flare once again, “Happy Holidays!”
