Aperiodvent, Day 19: James Grime’s Maths of Christmas

Friend of the Aperiodical James Grime made this video in 2009 discussing the arithmetic of the Twelve Days of Christmas song. Watch carefully and you might spot in the background the picture he keeps of himself that ages in his place.

This post is part of the Aperiodical’s 2018 Aperiodvent Calendar.
