Now that some of us are back to school and work, let us look at ways in which others conclude the Winter holidays. According to Gone-ta-Pott.com, one such transitional day is Plough Sunday/Monday:
"The day traditionally saw the resumption of work after the Christmas period. In some areas, particularly in northern England and East Anglia, a plough was hauled from house to house in a procession, collecting money. They were often accompanied by musicians, an old woman or a boy dressed as an old woman, called the ‘Bessy’, and a man in the role of the ‘fool’. 'Plough Pudding' is a boiled suet pudding, containing meat and onions, it is from Norfolk and is eaten on Plough Monday."
