Festive Traditions Through History: Best Posts

In the spirit of sharing, I thought I would make a note of some of my favorite blog posts pertaining to the festive season from some of the most entertaining and informative bloggers on my blog roll:

For all those who had a few too many at Hogmanay, I recommend: The History Hoydens' What was she drinking: Heroines who over-imbibed, a thought provoking comment on drunken (or the lack thereof) heroines in historical romance.

For a whistlestop tour of the origins of many of our Christmas traditions, I recommend Living History Today's post Christmas is a Coming, And the Goose is Getting Fat. This contains vital information such as when its proper to kiss under the Mistletoe and the long-lasting consequences if caught under the last berry.

For something on the 12th Day of Christmas, otherwise known as the Epiphany can I recommend a stop off with the Word Wenches for The End of Christmastide.

And finally, for a festive recipe by Mistress Longe pay a visit to the Two Nerdy History Girls (Loretta Chase and Susan Holloway Scott) who share How Mistress Longe made Snow, 1615

Happy reading!
