The Twelve Crimes of Christmas is a themed crime-spree often attempted by villains in the Eightfold universe, first mentioned in Jolt City # 10. The plan is to pull off a crime on twelve consecutive days, with each crime relating to the traditional song Twelve Days of Christmas. To wit:
Day 1: A partridge in a pear tree.
Day 2: Two turtledoves.
Day 3: Three french hens.
Day 4: Four calling birds.
Day 5: Five golden rings.
Day 6: Six geese-a-laying.
Day 7: Seven swans-a-swimming.
Day 8: Eight maids-a-milking.
Day 9: Nine ladies dancing.
Day 10: Ten lords-a-leaping.
Day 11: Eleven pipers piping.
Day 12: Twelve drummers drumming.
The Director's Guild of Anarchy successfully pulled twelve crimes in the Los Angeles area in 1989.
The Australian villain Tall Poppy went above-and-beyond, following the song's cumulative structure to a T and being charged for 364 separate counts.
