On the first day of Christmas…


1) On the first day of Christmas**/*****
On the first day of Christmas, my true love brought to me:
On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

Thus go the first two couplets of a traditional Christmas song. Question is:
Haw many things did my true love give me over these 12 days? (counting the partridge in the pear tree as one item)

2) On the second day of Christmas**/*****
Yeah, in puzzle 1 above you had the classical song. But in puzzle land, everything is different.
In puzzle land, on the second day of Christmas my true love brought me this puzzle:

“This puzzle consists of @ letters”

With what number (spelled out, of course) should @ be replaced to be true?

3) On the third day of Christmas**/*****
On the third day of Christmas, my true love brought to me this puzzle:

“This puzzle consists of @ vowels and # consonants”

Again, by which numbers, spelled out, should @ and # be replaced to yield a true sentence? Please note that “y” is counted as a vowel.
