What is Wassailing?
Wassailing is a blessing of the fruit trees, and is most common in the cider making and apple growing regions of the UK. Celebrations involve singing songs, giving tree roots a drink of cider, and soaking bread in cider or the wassail drink, before laying it on the tree branches as an offering to the pagan gods and goddesses. Traditionally wassailing takes place on the twelfth night!
