26th

PostAuthor: Morgan » Thu Jan 05, 2012 10:20 am

The custom of wren hunting was once widely observed on this day. The tiny bird, whose slaughter was prohibited at other times of the year, was imprisoned in a lantern or wren house, then solemnly paraded around the village, hung on a holly branch and borne to its funeral by the "droluns" or wren boys.

May your summers and winters be short, springs be mild and autumn reaping plentiful.
