The 12 Days Of Nissan


Here at your hometown Iowa City Nissan dealership, Carousel Nissan, we love the holidays. We especially love all of the festive and joyful holiday songs that fill us with such good cheer. One of our favorites is “The 12 Days of Christmas.” From a “partridge in a pear tree” to “three French hens,” “five golden rings,” and “12 drummers drumming,” it’s a whimsical tune that always brings a smile to the young and the young at heart.

This delightful holiday song inspired us to think about 12 different ways that our collection of Nissan cars, SUVs, and trucks here at our Nissan dealership in Iowa City should be at the top of your holiday wish list. (We’re sorry, but “seven swans a swimming” and “eight maids a milking” are not available Nissan options at this time.)
