Seasonal Celebrations:  Seasonal Celebrations Ideas for activities on the farm From a FACE seminar Seasonal celebrations:  Seasonal celebrations A seminar was held at Mary Arden’s House & Shakespeare Countryside Museum where we looked at a number of seasonal activities which could be celebrated on farms and at other countryside locations Thanks to all those who attended but in particular to Joe Moore, Shakespeare Birthplace Trust; Bobbie Harvey, FACE; Becki Pulford, Moulton College; and Gurbans Randhawa, Rugby Intercultural Support Services. Apple Day:  Apple Day On October the 21st every year, an annual celebration is held of apples, orchards and local distinctiveness. Initiated by Common Ground in 1990, it has since been celebrated each year by people organising hundreds of local events. http://www.commonground.org.uk/appleday/a-index.html Ideas for apple day activities:  Ideas for apple day activities Apple bobbing Longest peel competition Tree planting Tasting different varieties Toffee apple making Apple prints Apple produce Making/tasting apple juice Storytelling Baisakhi:  Baisakhi Baisakhi is a Sikh celebration held on or near April 13th to welcome the arrival of the harvesting season in parts of India. Typically, people join together to eat spicy foods, meats and boiled sweets. They wear new clothes, play games and attend fairs. Bangra dancing is enjoyed. www.123baisakhi/celebrations/index.html Baisakhi activities:  Baisakhi activities Naming fruits and vegetables Making scarecrows Collages Indian cookery Learning bangra dancing Well dressing/Rangoli:  Well dressing/Rangoli There are great similarities between the Derbyshire tradition of well dressing and the Hindu rangoli craft. Well dressing is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from local plant life. The dressings are set in clay-filled wooden trays, mounted on a wooden frame. www.welldressing.com Rangoli:  Rangoli A Rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor near the entrance to a house to welcome guests. At Diwali, Hindus draw bright Rangoli patterns to encourage the goddess Lakshmi to enter their homes. Traditionally the pictures are made from finely ground powder and colours but any materials can be used to replicate similar patterns. http://www.onlinebangalore.com/life/women/rangoli/rangoli.html Our efforts:  Our efforts Using a cardboard background we added seeds and flower petals to make a group rangoli Further efforts:  Further efforts We then made individual well dressings (or rangoli pictures!) using clay which had been pressed into lids of margarine tubs and seeds and petals etc More examples:  More examples Den building day:  Den building day Den building day was launched by the Forestry Commission in May 2006 to provide opportunities for outdoor play and adventure.

It was a way of passing on good wishes among family and friends Wassail is an ale-based drink seasoned with spices and honey. It was served from huge bowls Wassail gets its name from the Old English term "waes hael", meaning "be well". Apple trees were sprinkled with wassail to ensure a good crop. Villagers would gather around the apple trees with shotguns or pots and pans and made a tremendous racket to raise the Sleeping Tree Spirit and to scare off demons. Activities:  Activities Horton Kirby Study Centre offers a wassailing activity details of which can be found in the accompanying presentation Calendars:  Calendars There are many places where you can find calendars of celebrations. www.interfaithcalendar.org http://www.bbc.co.uk/parenting/family_matters/celeb_multifaith.shtml http://www.britainexpress.com/what's_new/calendar_of_events.htm
