Was hal! Queen Flo! Was hal!
THIS IS A SECRET PAGE JUST FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU PLEDGED ON TWELFTH NIGHT!
Here she is, queen Flo of the apples. It’s twelfth night tonight, and we should a’go a’wassailing, to drink lots of cider and eat apple cake, scare the evil spirits out of the trees and encourage them to follow the seasons and keep doing what they do best.
If you thought that twelfth night was the 6th of January, you are right – these days. But before the Gregorian calendar was adopted in Britain in the 18th century, it was the 17th of January. Also you can wassail right through January, which I think is a very good idea.
Thank you very much for your wassaily pledge!
(And if you got here through being tempted by the ‘special offer’ on Facebook or Twitter please do head back there and tell the waverers that they should definitely pledge and get this secret link too! Thanks!)
