Today, we’re staying quite close to home, with a tradition from Wales. It’s the Mari Lwyd! This strange looking thing is a horse skull, carried on a pole by someone hidden under a sheet.
The idea is that the people carrying the Mari Lwyd call at all the houses and each time they sing songs asking to come in. And the householders sing songs saying why they can’t come in, like a competition.
In the end, of course, the Mari Lwyd and everyone with it does come in, and we all have a festive drink!
While you’re here Fury, what’s on the calender? Oh, a sort of Christmas elf!
