Ploughing the Earth

Ploughing the Earth The motley group also includes the “king” with his retinue. When the carnival is over, he invites all mummers to a large table laid with food, blesses them and the whole community, and finally puts them all in a harness and begins “ploughing the fields”. This is, of course, another fertility ritual. http://www.vagabond-bg.com/index.php?page=live&sub=37&open_news=738
