Pagan Eye: Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival
Here's a photo of a straw bear taken at the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival this January by Helena Nash - thanks very much for sending in the great image!
The Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival celebrates an old Fenland plough custom of parading straw bears around the town every January.
Helena said: "It was a traditionalish folky English festival on a crisp January day near Peterborough."
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.
