Subject: RE: Help: Pace Egging?
As children during the mid fifties we would walk round our village in West Lancashire, Pace egging.We carried a basket and would knock on doors, say a poem and receive an easter egg or a gift of money.The
part of the poem I can remember are the last few lines
IF YOU HAVE NOT A SHILLING,
A HA,PENNY WILL DO,
IF YOU HAVE NOT A HA,PENNY,
THEN GOD BLESS YOU.
