Today we had a short walk by the Regent’s Canal to the Geffrye Museum to be part of an old British tradition which we learned from the Book of Christmas: burning holly and ivy on Twelfth Night of Christmas to avoid the bad luck.
When we first arrived there, the big garden of the Geffrye Museum was ready for the event. The Twelfth Night cakes and mulled wine on the tables decorated with candles, the place of the fire, the little scene for the band.
When it was getting dark, the garden was packed by people. When the time arrived we ended up by eating Twelfth Night cake, drinking mulled wine and singing christmas carols around the fire all together with the lyrics of the carrols on our hands. Farewell to christmas and another well lived day in our little kingdom.
