Jack in the Green

Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

A more un­usual part of May Day cel­e­bra­tions, Jack in the Green is a folk­lore fig­ure who dons a cos­tume of head-to-toe fo­liage. In Il­fra­combe in Devon, rev­ellers form a clap­ping cir­cle around him be­fore strip­ping him of his leafy cov­er­ings to wel­come the ‘spirit of sum­mer’.
