Pagan ritual in Springfield Park

Wassailing in Springfield Park, from Sousveillance (with picture):

"A pre-Christian traditional ceremony held on the old 12th night of 17 January and stemming from an Anglo-Saxon pagan ritual of visiting your apple trees and leaving them libations of cider and cider soaked toast to encourage their fertility next year."

Back in 2002 there were believed to be between 50,000 and 200,000 pagans in the UK - BBC
