Apple Day


A relatively modern celebration, Apple Day, was first celebrated in 1990 in Covent Garden. Now it is celebrated every year throughout the country on the weekend closest to the 30th of October.

Characters from much older traditions are commonly found joining in this more modern festival. The GreenMan was spotted at Apple Day festivities yesterday at the Borough Market.  Over the next few days I'll introduce you to a few of the others I spotted celebrating the occasion.

I like the apple necklace. He can eat it at the end of the day if he wishes. :)

The idea does seem to go back to older traditions. Terrific portrait!

A most wonderful celebration.
What a brilliant mix of colours in your portrait photograph here - I look forward to seeing more as the week goes on.

All the best Jan
