Subject: happy? – Jan 6 (Ward and the 'Rainbow')
From: Abby Sale
Date: 06 Jan 06 - 10:32 AM

The pirate John Ward applies to James I for amnesty. It is refused.

        For he has sent unto our king,
        The sixth of January,    [1608]
        Desiring that he might come in
        With all his company.

                "The Famous Fight Between Captain Ward and the Rainbow."
                from Oxford Book of Sea Songs, Palmer & Child #287

ALSO: Just for this century it's Twelfth Night, Epiphany and old Christmas and in Brooklyn it's Three Kings Day.
