Subject: RE: Folklore: Old Twelfth Night- the wassail Jan. 17
we still Wassail in our hamlet and we did it last saturday night. we walked to the bottom orchard and wassailed that then walked back to my cottage and wassailed my trees then back inside to eat the wassail feast, singing, music and.. the local mummers play. we know that one was performed here in 1733, the Reeves accounts say 4 3/4d for the mummers.
