Tuesday 29th May is the English Folk Festival of Oak Apple Day; held in honour of oak trees after Charles II escaped from Cromwell’s army by hiding in an oak tree. Oak leaves are worn until midday.

In May 1660, Oak Apple Day or Royal Oak Day was a declared as a formal public holiday, to be celebrated in England on 29th May to commemorate the restoration of the English Monarchy.

Although it was formally abolished in 1869, the day is still celebrated Oak applein some parts of the country and is alternatively known as Shick Shack Day. Oak and Nettle Day, Yak Bob Day or Arbour tree Day.  The image to the left, taken from the Wikipedia page [By Photographer: Simon Garbutt, via Wikimedia Commons], shows the Garland King and his consort at Castleton, Derbyshire.
