Burning of the Clavie (2) - the Procession
NJ1168 : Burning of the Clavie (1) - the Clavie. Once it is well alight, the burning Clavie is carried through the streets of the town by the members of the Clavie Crew, who must be natives of the town to qualify. It is followed by a procession of hundreds of onlookers. On the route through the town, the Clavie Crew hands pieces of the Clavie - smouldering pieces of wood - to householders to ensure good luck for the ensuing year.
