Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night, the eve of January 5, is in English folk custom the end of Christmas merrymaking and in ancient Celtic tradition the end of the 12-day winter solstice celebration.

On this night, it was customary for the assembled company to toast one another from the wassail bowl. In Old English, wassail means “Be in good health,” but the term also was applied to the drink itself (usually spiced ale) 😉

Wassail Recipe here.

(Today’s Candle fragrance: Spiced Cranapples & Ginger: Tart cranberries and sweet, juicy apples infused with warm ginger and a hint of spicy cinnamon.)
