Celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas The Daily Meal-style, with a food carol about some of New York City's best dishes.

Arthur Bovino

Margherita at DiFara in Brooklyn, NY.

Technically, the Twelve Days of Christmas don’t start until Christmas Day, but we’re already in the spirit. To celebrate over the next three days, here’s the carol, ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ The Daily Meal-style, featuring some New York City dishes enjoyed over the years that we’d be willing to sing about.

Nine Ladies Dancing. Badabing badaboom.

On the nihth day of Christmas, my waiter brought to me clockwise from top: DiFara, John’s of Bleecker, Pizza Moto, Frank Pepe, Kesté Pizza & Vino, Motorino, Veloce Pizzeria, Co., and Patsy’s, all Margheritas.

So the carol thus far would go:

On the ninth day of Christmas, my waiter brought to me...
Nine pies a-twirling,
Eight, made with milk in,
Seven soups worth sipping,
Six eggs for feasting,
Five on-ion rings!

Chicks from four birds,
Three fried French hens,
Two desserts for two,
And Felidia’s pear ravioli.

Think another New York City dish should've been featured? Suggest it below!


Double Ninth Festival (Chongyang Festival)

Just as other Chinese festivals have their own unique story, so does the Double Ninth Festival. It is said that, during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 - 220), a devil inhabited the Nu River which caused disease in the neighbouring people. The parent of a young man, named Hengjing, died because of the devil's magic. In order to rid the people of the devil, Hengjing went through extraordinary lengths to find an immortal to teach him swordsmanship in order to expel the devil.

On the eighth day of the ninth lunar month, the immortal told Hengjing that the next day the devil would appear and he was to go back to get rid of the devil and the disease. Taking a bag of dogwood and some chrysanthemum wine, Hengjing returned to his hometown. In the morning of the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, Hengjing led all the villagers who were each holding a piece of dogwood leaf and a cup of Chrysanthemum to the nearest mountain. At noon, when the devil came out from the Nu River, the devil suddenly stopped because of the fragrance emitted from the dogwood and the chrysanthemum wine. At that moment Hengjing used the sword to battle the devil for a few rounds and won.

Since then the custom of climbing mountains, drinking chrysanthemum wine and holding onto dogwood on the ninth day of the ninth month have become popular.
