It begins after the bill is presented to the President to sign it. Article 1, Section 7, Clause 2. If the time began on the day when it is cleared, meaning passed by both Houses of Congress and readied to be presented, Congress could hold it back for a few if not all the ten days and make it harder if not impossible for the president to veto it. A bill that is not vetoed within the ten day period becomes law after the ten days if the president does not sign it, unless Congress adjourns in that time and makes it impossible for the president to send the bill with his objection back to Congress.

What is Psalm 55?

== 1Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication. 2Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise; 3Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me. 4My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me. 5Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me. 6And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. 7Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah. 8I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. 9Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city. 10Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.11Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets. 12For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: 13But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. 14We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. 15Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. 16As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. 17Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. 18He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. 19God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. 20He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant. 21The words of his mouth were smother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. 22Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to bemoved.23But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit ofdestruction:bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

What 12 gifts were given in the 12 days of Christmas?

Many people add up the number of gifts such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 and think that this amount (78) is the right number. It is not, because you have to add up all the consecutive gifts for every day. Day 1- receives 1 gift Day 2- receives 3 additional gifts, making 4 total Day 3- receives 6 additional gifts, making 10 total Day 4- receives 10 additional gifts, making 20 total Day 5- receives 15 additional gifts, making 35 total Day 6- receives 21 additional gifts, making 56 total Day 7- receives 28 additional gifts, making 84 total Day 8- receives 36 additional gifts, making 120 total Day 9- receives 45 additional gifts, making 165 total Day 10- receives 55 additional gifts, making 220 total Day 11- receives 66 additional gifts, making 286 total Day 12- receives 78 additional gifts, making 364 total gifts received.
