Day 362: Have I told you about the Green Man?
I probably have, I have certainly told you that Mythago tell the green man story but I don’t think I told you much about the story its self…
(forgive me if I have…)
The green Many in mythology is a representation of the rebirth of the land in the springtime, and seeming death in winter, his story is the story of the seasons and the wheel of the year.
there is more info about him Here.
He is also a very common carving and representation around the churches and pubs of the UK, more info here
This coming weekend we are retelling the green man story twice, so Wednesday’s dance practice was half given over to making sure there were enough people who know the dances!
It turns out I am one of them…(I did technically know this as I was in all of them a couple of weeks ago)
the story dances are:
End of the world
so I did all of those…
we also had time to practice other dances, some with walks through so the new members would get a go and these were:
Star of the County Down
King of the Fairies
Raggle Taggle Gypsy
