mikesamwild Traditions: Transferable? (53* d) RE: Traditions: Transferable? 05 Jan 13

For some reason 'wassailing' has been practised in Sheffield recently at tree plantings , one of a Walnut, by Richard hawley, local hit musician (ex Pulp)
I wonde rif it is because it is a nice 'non religious' ceremony with no obvious sectarian significance.

Maybe as our multicultural society leads us into the possibiity of ghettos we may adopt apparently secular traditions which may in ancient ties have had more of a religious significance.

Christmas nativities are becoming a bit like that, we had a pizza delivery boy and a spaceman along with the magi! To give everyone a chance of a part more animals are being introduced at the manger.

I did read that in Japan they had Santa Claus on a cross in one department store at Christmas.
