Twelve Days of Christmas

The traditional twelve days of Christmas are the last six days (December 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31) of the current year or old year, and the six days (January 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) of the next year or new year.  The traditional English Christmas carol counts off each day by a gift that was given.  This is a parody using the items that fossil fuels are responsible for giving us throughout time whether it is by oil, natural gas, diesel, coal, plastic, metal components, etc.
