Posted in Bonkers Away, Wassail


Hi Everyone!

Hope: Come on girls let’s go for a “wassail”.
And where do you think they serve “wassails?”
Does anyone know how to make a “wassail?”
I do!!!!
Abby, Nins, Hope: YOU! Where in the heck did you learn how to do that?
Mabel: Well when I was younger “wassail” was a big treat in our home for the holidays. Here’s the story I found, that will help everyone understand:
From In some English communities, on the Twelfth Night of Christmas, people go wassailing, where they sing songs called wassails to the apple trees to wake them up and scare away evil spirits so there will be a good harvest. Those are some powerful wassails …
Wassailing people go caroling, greetings to all who step through your door, festivals, jubilees, and many more words of celebrating.

Found non-alcoholic Wassail recipe. Enjoy!

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on Thank you for stopping by!
