GUEST,JohnB Traditions: Transferable? (53* d) RE: Traditions: Transferable? 21 Dec 12

Here in Canada Orange Peel Morris have been around since 1996.
11 Years ago, we started the Orange Peel Carollers, although some have been Carolling for a lot longer than that, doing several of the Yorkshire and Sheffield Village Carols.
Five or six years ago we were asked to do a Mummers Play for 12th Night Festivities in Cambridge Ontario, we did the play and all was well.
The third year of the celebration WE wanted to do a different play and were told by several people "You can't do a different one, It's Traditional Now"
We also do an Apple Wassail on or around the 17th of Jan, which for some reason seems to be one of the coldest nights we have, as low as -25 on one occasion. This has developed our own OP tradition of NOT lighting the Brandy on the Christmas Cake with a sword though it.
JohnB any other good traditions around we can borrow?
