Hope: Come on girls let’s go for a “wassail”.
Nins: And where do you think they serve “wassails?”
Abby: Does anyone know how to make a “wassail?”
Mabel: 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 Dictionary.com: 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!
