Wassailing took place during the Christmas season and involved going from door to door singing carols or offering drinks of spiced ale.  This was a popular tradition in England.

 

Visitors to the Oshawa Community Museum’s Annual Lamplight tour will be treated to an evening of wassailing carols, provided by Ken Ramsden of Freshwater Trade!  Lamplight is taking place on December 8, 2012 from 6-8PM.
