In the spirit of today’s holiday, a couple of people have been posting SQL related renditions of holiday songs.  Tim Mitchell posted his 12 days of SQL Christmas, and Paul Randal and Kimberly Tripp went as far as to record themselves sing SQL Carols on their blog post Our Christmas Gift To You: Paul and Kimberly Singing!  For today’s post on Extended Events I give you the 12 days of Christmas, Extended Events style (all of these are based on true facts about Extended Events in SQL Server).
