Merrie Christmas, dear listeners!!!
In this episode we discuss how those Elizabethans celebrated Christmas - for twelve days, those filthy animals!!!
At the end of the episode is a special gift from us to you... Merry Merry!!!!
So now is come our joyful'st feast,
Let every man be jolly.
Each room with ivy leaves is drest,
And every post with holly.
Though some churls at our mirth repine,
Round your foreheads garlands twine,
Drown sorrow in a cup of wine,
And let us all be merry.
(George Wither—16th c. poet)
