Plough-Monday is the first Monday after Twelfth Day (6th of January). It is so called because, the Christmas holidays being over, the men return to their plough or daily work. It was customary on this day for farm laborers...
I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new website The Pagan Calendar, hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com, and can be found in its entirety here: Plough Monday
