The 12 days of Christmas, the Sri Lankan version

I was talking to my lovely mother on the phone, and she gave me the idea to write a Sri Lankan version of the 12 days of Christmas. 

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

12 bats a’flying

11 monkeys laughing

10 egrets roosting

9 tuktuks honking

8 peddlers peddling

7 monks a’praying

6 curries spicy

5 elephants

4 deviled cashews

3 temples

2 coconuts

and a mynah bird in a palm tree.

Merry Christmas!
