*This entry to an essay competition includes the following item of folklore:-

"Plough Monday (or Plough Bullock Night) as it was called. Boys came to the houses offering to do a sketch for money. In it was Saint George, and I think a fight, as a Doctor came to the assistance of the victim. It is many years ago, I do not know the meaning of it, but it was after Christmas, about (January 6th epiphany time.)"
