January 6: Twelfth Night: European holy day. Day to clean up the debris from the Yule Feast.
Wassailing: Pre-Christian Germanic tradition was to wassail, which comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase waes hael, which meant to be whole or to be healthy. The Anglo-Saxons would toast each others health and share drink from a large wooden bowl. The wassail drink was called lambs wool. The traditional mixture was made by adding spices to hot ale, beer, or mead. In more recent times it has been made from hot apple cider. The traditional spices included: nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon (especially nutmeg), sweetened with sugar, honey, or sugar-coated crab apples (especially honey). The mixture was served hot and often topped with toasted bread.
Wedding reading from ancient Egypt:
Let My Love Love Me Best , from the Turin Papyrus, in the Ramesside period circa 1100 BCE, Egypt.
Let my love love me best and I shall ordain
Her hands full of lotus blossoms and flowers
Full of buds and perfumes, strong ale
And beer of every brewable kind
Then shell give me, her love, a day to remember
Make me drink down this day to its last shadow
