Tales of the Life and Times of a Northern UK Taxi Driver.
Sunday, November 26
Have a look at this one from Joe in the Highlands of Scotland " Dating back to pre-Christian times, a 'clootie well' is a magical spring where you leave an article of clothing, a clootie. The idea is that if you are sick, you can leave your sickness in your clothing and as it decays away, so will your sickness." I've seen something similar in Greece but never knew we had anything like this over here, cool!
