Unless it was a joke, in which case I knew it was a joke all along.
OK, I shold have googled first. let me go and do that now.
The tradition of wassailing (alt sp wasselling) falls into two distinct categories: The House-Visiting wassail and the Orchard-Visiting wassail. The House-Visiting wassail, caroling by another name, is the practice of people going door-to-door singing Christmas carols. The Orchard-Visiting wassail refers to the ancient custom of visiting orchards in cider-producing regions of England, reciting incantations and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the coming year.
IT HAPPENS TOMORROW
OH GIVE US SOME FIGGY PUDDING.
(wouldn't say no to some hot cider though.)
Here's to thee, old apple tree,
That blooms well, bears well.
Hats full, caps full,
Three bushel bags full,
An' all under one tree.
sounds like a lovely thing to do
Apple tree, apple tree, we all come to wassail thee,
Bear this year and next year to bloom and to blow,
Hat fulls, cap fulls, three cornered sack fills,
Hip, Hip, Hip, hurrah,
Holler biys, holler hurrah.
(I quite fancy giving this a go actually. In oppostie land.)
why focus on the misogyny prevalent in rap/hip-hop?
he has to spend time consider how he's going to respond to this.
The Wassailing event is actually taking place at a pop-up cocktail bar which utilises the plants of the Brunel Museum's garden in Rotherhithe to make its drinks:
Midnight apothecary - shuts at 10:30pm
Don't get your hampton caught
The Wassailer's gather round to toast the tree.
Our voices raise in joy throughout the gloom,
"Bring forth thine apples; sweet bough, we sing of thee!"
A hundred ruddy cheeks glow in the fire -
Our artisanal cocktails make us cheer.
And Brunel's mighty tunnel of desire
Throbs below, makes our tummies feel all queer.
But what is this strange odour I can sense?
Coming from my glass, above the fire's smoke?
My scarf around my mouth in self defence,
I fear that this must be some sick'ning joke.
Can there be any greater shame that this:
Mulled cider, mixed with cruel bedwetters' piss.
To LoL hard at it (sorry h_y_g).
MATTHEW MCCONNAUGHEY. BEST ACTOR.
(never seen any of these. Never heard of most of them :/ will probably watch a third of them when they get onto netflix in 2017.)
We didn't pay £5 to sit in a cocktail bar
It's an OUTDOOR cocktail bar.
