Plough Monday is January 12th

While most people are settling indoors for the winter, traditional farmers know that January 12th begins the Spring plowing season.  “Plough Monday” is the first Sunday after the 12 days of Christmas, which end Jan. 6th (Epiphany).  In the past, the Church blessed farmers and their plows and farm communities hosted games to mark the beginning of the new farm year.

Time to get the horses in shape and the plows ready.
