Montol and the Mock

I’m looking forward to Montol …. our very own Midwinter procession with guise dancing, lanterns and music – more Saturnalia than Christmas. There will also be the lighting of a Yule log – the ‘mock’, a Cornish version of the pagan tradition. A beacon will be lit on top of the ancient Lescudjack Hill Fort too. We like beacons down here…
Guising ‘..in the spirit of misrule…’ is a Cornish winter tradition.

Last but not least – Penglaz and Teazer.
