glueman Wassailing and other weird folk rituals (37) RE: Wassailing and other weird folk rituals 10 Feb 12

Just been reading Kai Roberts' 'Grave Concerns - The Follies and Folklore of Robin Hood's Final Resting Place'. As fine an example of contemporary mores overlaid on legend as one could wish for.

The definition of a traditional festival is a) does it bring people together, b) do they derive enjoyment from it, c) can they get a drink, d) does it occur more than once, e) can they dress up without fear of arrest.
