What's Wassail?

Wassail-Days-Cup-Only-276x300Wassail is a generations old holiday tradition that by most accounts originated in England and was simply a wish “to be in good health and fortune.” In England people celebrated with Wassail in hopes of a good apple harvest. There are many Wassail traditions throughout the world, but in Frisco, Wassail Days is an holiday experience for people looking for unique shopping and a slowed down version of holiday celebrations.

Shoppers can buy a commemorative Wassail mug from participating merchants and at the Frisco/Copper Information Center located on 3rd and Main. Take your mug from shop to shop and taste each merchant’s interpretation of Wassail. At the end of your shopping, vote for your favorite Wassail.
