Kingston Morris joined Thames Valley Morris Men, Phoenix Clog, and Black Swan Border Morris last night as guests of Ewell St. Mary's Morris Men at the Willoughby Arms for their annual wassail. Time for a Wikipedia quote: Wassail is a beverage of hot mulled cider, drunk traditionally as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year. The word wassail comes from Old English was hál, related to the Anglo-Saxon greeting wes þú hál , meaning "be you hale"—i.e., "be healthful" or "be healthy". Needless to say the landlord had laid on cask of hot mulled cider (well spiced) and there was plenty of beer. Five Morris sides and a local choir crammed into this lively pub to sing and dance and there was indeed much good cheer.
