'Und for your present, I haf imported a dead tree!'

The Pickard sisters are blogging answers to all of your burning holiday questions in a one-a-day, advent calendar style at 'Tis the Season. I highly recommend the December 5 entry:

Scene 4, int. hovel, mid winter morning.

Man: Come, wyf, our crops lafted us through the shortest day of wynter have!
Let us celebrate with mead and dead pygs!
Soon the days, extend thay wyll, and we shall have zummer once mair.
I have brought young John a present fair the occasion.
A box it is.

Woman: Oh husband, John died this morning of a runny nose.
Yet, comforted shall I be, with my 17 more children.
Put John in the box, and let us feast and celebrate the myd-wynter!

Man: Fayre enuff.

Read the rest of the post for more mid-winter celebrations through time.
