Wassailing is an age old tradition, as the harvest comes to a close. Winegrowers (and wine drinkers!) celebrate the harvest with music, and generally toast to good health and good crops. A number of the local County wineries celebrate Wassail with special mulled ciders and wines, seasonal activities and holiday treats during this celebration.

"It’s a fastbeautiful and fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.

Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – it’s all as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.

Oh yeah, did we mention it’s free?"
