It happened today!

April 19th 1824
(Lord) George Gordon Byron dies at sunset,of marsh fever, at Missolonghi, where he has been summoning troops to help the Greeks fight for independence. His diaries are burned. "The whole memories were fit only for a brothel and would damn Lord B to everlasting infamy if published". Shame. It was Byron who declared "You may call the people a mob,but do not forget tha a mob often speaks the sentiments of the people"
(from The Calendar Riots)

"First Fruits Festival in the Scottish Highlands; hand picked, sun-dried corn is ground in a quern, kneaded in a sheep-skin and made into a bannock, baked over a fire of rowan wood."

Any local customs in your area?
