"The wren, the wren,
The king of all birds.
St Stephen's Day
She was caught in the furze
Although she is little
Her honour is great
Get up, great people
And give us our treat"

There is a tradition that it is unlucky to work mills on St. Martin's Day because St. Martin was ground up in a mill.

Most people in this district used to kill a cock on St Martin's Day in former times. The cock was killed at the back door and was brought around the house, the blood being sprinkled on the four corners.

If blood of fowl were not spilled inside door on St. Martin's day people believed that all fowl would die.
