|dancing and singing to the Wassail God|
Last year was our first time experiencing the Wassail celebration. We really didn't know what to expect other than we knew there was going to be drinking, singing, and dancing in the orchard. After enjoying some great food and spirits with some Celtic music of this 1800's we were called out to a huge bonfire and asked to bang on pots and pans to awaken the cider tree spirits. We were then led in the Wassailing ceremony singing the following lyrics:
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 hurray
We had a great time with great food, spirits, and friends!
