Easter Monday

by

Hello, it’s Easter Monday as we’re sure you all know. We hope you all enjoyed your Easter Eggs and the time off.

Now, Easter Monday is traditionally a time for a wide range of interesting local customs. Among these is the ‘bottle kicking’ game from Leicestershire, a tradition that goes back for many years:

Meanwhile, in the North of England, the World Coal Carrying Championship is taking place:

And not forgetting that today is also Hop Monday to commemorate (or should that be celebrate?) the arrival of Hops in Britain.
