Christmas 2

The Boar’s Head Carol is ancient compared to most of the carols for Christmas. It was written in Middle English and titled, “The Bores Heed in Hande Bring I” and wasn’t considered a Christmas Carol except for the custom of eating your finest meal at Christmastime. In that way, wild boar became associated with Christmas.

Oh dear, will we ever become serious about this carolling? Maybe tomorrow evening.
