Music!

Hi, welcome to music in the middle ages! If you are a King or Nobleman you will be dining to the sound of music made by a poet. But if your not you can go to the church were most people listen to music. I cant wait for a festival so we can listen to music and dance to the sound of pipes and drums. In the 1400’s most towns had a town band of professional musicians, our town band will be playing at the festival with all your favorite insterments including the Flute, Tambourine, hurdy-gurdy, lute, harp, clarinet, viol, cymbals, Shawm, trumpet and a light organ.

Holidays!
Hello, did you know that the word “holiday” comes from “holy day”? Speaking of holy days, Christmas and Easter are among the holiest of them. Christmas celebrates the day Jesus Christ was born and at Easter people will remember his death. On the Friday and Saturday before Easter you can look out your window to see the children running through the streets with clappers and yelling out that Easter is almost here and on Easter Sunday the church bells will ring. The children will decorate eggs and trade them with each other then they will take turns rolling the eggs down a hill and see whose is fastest. I cant wait for saints day so we can celebrate the lives of the saints that protect us.Now lets talk about christmas, oh how i love christmas the time that the people decorate thier homes with ivy, holly and mistletoe and eat gingerbread as special treats. On christmas the nobles will invite all you peasents over for a delightful meal of meat, soup, good bread and wine and for all you nobles out thier who will have a seperate feast featuring roasted peacock and boar with other nobles all i say is cheers! 

Gingerbread recipie!!!!

Bring the honey to the boil and skim off any scum. Keeping the saucepan over very low heat, stir in the breadcrumbs and spices. When the mixture is a thick, well-blended, mass (add more breadcrumbs if necessary), remove from heat and allow to cool slightly .
Place on a flat surface and press firmly into an evenly shaped square or rectangle, about 0.6cm thick. Allow to cool, cut into small squares to serve.


Garnish each square by sticking a whole clove in the top centre.
