The song is described as a “memory and forfeits game” played by children.
Most scholars believe that the song originated in France, however, since the partridge wasn’t introduced to England until the 1770s. In some early version s, the “calling birds” were written as “collie birds,” or blackbirds, and the five golden rings were meant to be five ringnecked birds such as pheasants. But over the centuries, the words have changed, and now “calling birds” is widely accepted and the rings are the kind you wear on your fingers. Regardless of the various theories about the song’s origins, people continue to sing it at Ch ristmastime with great enthusiasm.
