I'm sure that many of you, including me, will be attending wassails in January, singing around a tree with all the accompanying ceremony, but is anyone (apart from the Bodmin Wassailers) actually going around the houses at Christmas and the New Year with a wassail bowl, singing the song and wishing the occupants a Happy New Year etc. I mention this as the old Gloucestershire custom was always house-to-house, not the orchard wassail, and was done around Christmas or the New Year, but these days the only sort of wassail I hear of locally is the orchard wassail.

Have to confess now: I've already done Sid Kipper's " Death or Glory Wassail" at a session yesterday! Not really the answer you wanted, Tradsinger?

Not wassailing but I did see 2 Hooden Horses in the pub on Monday night.

Maybe I should start a thread entitled "2 horses walk into a pub.."
