Wassailing 20th January 2018

Cheriton Fitzpaine will be hosting their 2nd Wassailing night on Saturday 20th January at 6.30pm. It is a great night for the whole family & is run by local villagers. What is Wassailing I here you ask ? The dictionary says ‘drink plentiful amounts of alcohol and enjoy oneself with others in a noisy, lively way’ Sounds good to me!https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wassail+meaning&oq=wassail&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0l5.2725j0j4&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=91&ie=UTF-8

Morris Men will lead the procession up to the orchard for revellers to bless the tree. We do this with pots & pans, and our voices. Burnt toast is used to bless the apple tree for a great harvest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassailing
