Wassail with the Historical Society
Share a cup of cheer with members and friends of the Historical Society of Kent County from 4 to 8 p.m. First Friday, Dec. 7 at the Bordley History Center, 301 High St.
The Historical Society will celebrate opening night of Chestertown’s Dickens of a Christmas Weekend with mulled cider and wine, and delectable homemade cookies, a news release states.
Wassail is a “Middle English salutation from the Anglo Saxon ‘wes hal’ meaning ‘be whole,’ or as we might say ‘be well,’” the release states.
It is a drink made with wine, beer or cider, spices, sugar, and usually baked apples and is traditionally served in a large bowl especially at Christmastime.
Wood turned bowls by Tom Bullman will be for sale at the annual Artisans Sale offered by the Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown.
