Hankies, Bells and Big Sticks

Some do venture out on Christmas morning but it's with the coming of spring that they start to appear in town squares, pub gardens, on village greens and anywhere vaguely associated with folklore, celtic crosses, local landmarks.

I used to laugh at them, avoid them even, but not now, though I rarely search them out. Their hankies, bells and big sticks.

Remember reading something about them, like being of Moorish origin. Never saw them until today. Thanks.
