Burning of the Clavie (1) - the Clavie
The Burning of the Clavie celebrates the New Year, old style, which falls on 11 January (unless 11 January is a Sunday, in which case the celebration is held on 10 January). The Clavie is a half-cask, mounted securely on a pole, and filled with staves of wood and inflammable liquid. See NJ1169 : Burning of the Clavie (2) - the Procession.
