FIIIIIVVVEEE GOOOLLLDDDEN RRIIIINGGGGSSS!!!

There’s pretty good evidence suggesting "five golden rings" is actually a reference to the yellowish rings around a pheasant’s neck or to “goldspinks,” an old name for a pretty little bird called the Goldfinch—not to the hand jewelry. And that actually makes sense, considering every other lyric in the first seven days of the song references a bird: a partridge, turtle doves, French hens (or “fat ducks,” depending on the version), calling birds (or black birds), swans and geese.   - from 12 Things You Might Not Know About "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Dakota Morrison.
