Harvest Festival

Recommended Posts

I was piloting the Grand Piano earlier today, in the Trebuchet challenge! I won! I came second after some Chinese burd! But she lost on the technicality of not being completely nude!

Then, we had "bobbing for rats" for the younger kids! And then the "the hirsute ladies, "breast feeding the badger cub" competition!

:rolleyes:

What the fugg do you have in London? :unsure:

Nutters with machetes and Boris Johnson, that's about it. Not recommended.

As it happens, our annual allotment barbecue/ competition is next w/e. Even the most reluctant are encouraged to enter something on the basis that 'it's just a bit of fun', when clearly it's not. The three people who win everything every year just want more people to beat. No nudity or wurlitzers, unfortunately.

Back in the old country, every town and village used to hold an annual festival focused on some arbitrarily selected agricultural product. My understanding was that the intention was to keep in-breeding in check, only partially successfully as far as I can tell. Where my dad's family hail from it was, funnily enough, shrooms. Mum's village ... potato cake. Which, festival wise, can be quite limiting.

I used to pass through a few village where they did this:

Followed by this

I always wondered what the poor sod had done to deserve it.

All good gifts around us

are sent from heaven above;

then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord

for all his love.

The hymn was originally seventeen verses long, each followed by a refrain

Ah the joys of harvest festival. Fighting in the pews over hymn books. With hindsight I might have needed glasses back then to read that tiny print.

Having to take some tins in for the food collection for the old people. Tinned grapefruit was a favourite to take. :)

Tell me about it, it always seemed to be about 70 verses long when we sang it at school!
