12 days of Christmas

Maybe you all can help clear up a little confusion in our house.  We are having a debate over the song "the twelve days of Christmas."


In my dd’s lapbook, from Knowledge Box Central, there is a question that wants to know the total of gifts that the ‘true love’ received.


Now here’s the problem, did he/she only receive that day’s gifts, or did they receive that days and all the others also.  Example:  that days would total 78  <1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12>  or all the others also: which would be on day twelve they would receive 78, and on day 11 they would receive 67.


I know I’m confusing.  I don’t know how to word it any better.  The answer they gave was 78.  I guess a few of us around here view the song as different.
