Life in the UK - Plough Sunday

Today in the United Kingdom, people are marking Plough Sunday, a day that celebrates the centuries-old ritual of the blessing of the plough.  My ancestors, as well as hubby's UK family, lived by the plough.  It was their way of tending fields to feed the family, whether consuming what they grew, or selling crops for cash.  Honestly, I did not know a lot about Plough Sunday.  But in following the Lyme Regis Museum blog, I learned more about the celebrations they will be having.  Dark Dorset's blog gives more history here
