Wassail, my lovelies!

“Wassail comes from the Old English words ‘waes hael’,¬†which means “be well,” “be hale,” or “good health.” A strong, hot drink (usually a mixture of ale, honey, and spices) would be put in a large bowl, and the host would lift it and greet his companions with “waes hael,” to which they would reply “drinc hael,” which meant “drink and be well…”

Christmas past rocks!
