The Australian Twelve Days of Christmas meets The Jolly Postman.

My true love is an adventurer. Whenever he is away from home, he sends me cards and little notes about the places he’s been. When he asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I said, “Surprise me.” What a mistake! Toucans from Costa Rica, swinging monkeys, pandas playing ping pong, sleeping sloths, peeping giraffes, hiding tigers - I mean, the cards and letters are great, but where does he think I’m going to keep all these creatures!
