How to find out more about claiming compensation with injury lawyers in Littlestone
Littlestone is a small coastal village near New Romney in Kent. If you enjoy sharing a drink with family and friends at this time of the year, you might be interested to know a little about the wassail bowl. Wassail was originally a pagan tradition which the Christian church adopted.
The wassail was basically a bowl of steaming hot ale to which sugar, spices and maybe the soft pulp of roasted apples could be added. It was a great way to bring a community together as the bowl would be passed around the parish. Each house would be drunk to and then the occupants of the house would fill up the bowl with more of the delicious drink.
A symbol of peace
The Church minimalized wassail’s pagan origins and promoted it as a symbol of peace and goodwill unto all men. The most prudish Victorians tried to disguise it even further by naming it the ‘vessel cup’ which hinted at it belonging to the communion service. Even when it was known as the ‘vessel cup’ it was still taken from home to home by carol singers with dolls which represented Jesus and the Virgin Mary. A collection tin was held out at each house to ensure good luck for the householders for the coming year.
The Victorians were an imaginative lot and had a whole range of drinks which emanated from Wassail; they all tended to be spicy, sweet and served hot. Although wassail was originally based on ale there was also a mulled wine drink and punch version which would combine wine and spirits.
Punched on the nose
So if your village is having a Christmas event with Christmas carols, wassail and mulled wine you are probably looking forward to it. Let’s hope that when Mr Smith, self-appointed leader of the amateur dramatic society has a bit too much wassail that he doesn’t let out all those annoyed feelings he has been keeping inside when Mr Jones has attempted to upstage him at every turn all year long. It’s never a pretty sight when folks get their nose punched in the midst of Christmas cheer. However, if it turns out that your nose ends up bleeding by mistake and you need cosmetic surgery on it, you may want to find out more about claiming compensation with injury lawyers in Littlestone.
