Tudor Christmases were the most special celebration of
all. The celebration would have taken place in a large
hall. They would have a Lord of Misrule who rode a hobby horse, Mummers who
were actors, Jesters who kept everyone happy, Merrymakers who were
ordinary people, people who wore heads of strange monsters and costumes as
well, Musicians who played Tudor music with pipes, drums, lutes and
whistleswho played in a gallery.
|They would have a big table full of things like peacock pie,
boars head, ale and wine. They would have holly all around the room including hanging
from the ceiling and they had lots of colours of ribbons. They would eat
huge meals. That's why some people would be fat.
