We had a very successful Handsel Monday celebration on January 13th. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to listen to our talk and poem reading.
The mulled wine/apple juice went down a treat and everyone received their cakes!
To fill the night we had our own Pam give us a talk about Handsel Monday, Dave read an excerpt from “Auld Handsel Monday” by Samuel Mucklebuckit (1892) and then shared memories and stories of Handsel Mondays past.
Our friends at the Scape Trust have written this informative article about the tradition of Handsel Monday and the Wemyss Caves.
