Christmas Eve - about 1460 by Pauline Baynes

Christmas Eve, as celebrated in 1460 with children bringing in holly and the Yule Log to be lit on Christmas Day, and other joining in a last minute carol practice, while the lord of the manor sends his seasonable gifts of cheer and goodwill to the poor tenants. A holly wreath hangs from the weathercock and inside, a kissing bough is being fixed in place, the table linen, pewter and gold plate is arranged in readiness for the next day and one of the ladies carries a Twelfth Night cake which will be cut to mark the end of the Christmas celebrations

Note also the wide selection of beers and other alcoholic beverages available for purchase alongside one's large plaice and chips! Date: circa 1901
