"Here's to thee, old apple tree,
Whence thou mayst bud
And whence thou mayst blow!
And whence thou mayst bear apples now!
Hats full! Caps full!
Bushel--bushel--sacks full,
And my pockets full too! Huzza!"


Please bring with you:

  • some cider (not obligatory!)
  • warm clothes
  • something to play music or make some noise
  • children (we need them to put toast in the trees!)
  • a slice of toast
  • plenty of good cheer!
