Subject: RE: Folklore: Proper Dress for Wassailing
In my neck of the world we prefer a deep purple sweatsuit with a big, gold W emblazoned across the breast.

No, actually, that's just a friend's fantasy. We simply wear comfortably warm outdoor togs, preferably with shoes that are easily slipped off when we're invited in.

The morris team do not wear kit; the white wouldn't survive the weather or the long day and, anyway, the dancers would get too cold.
