Jersey's cider orchards will be blessed today in a pagan ceremony dating back to the medieval times.
The National Trust and Jersey Heritage have organised the event which involves drinking hot mulled cider, banging pots and pans to ward of evil spirits, singing, dancing and hanging cider-soaked toast from apple trees.
The tradition is called 'Wassailing' and dates back centuries in England, when, in the dead of winter, villagers would stage ceremonies in the hopes of ensuring a good cider apple harvest the following year.
The name comes from the Old English salute 'Waes Hail', first used as a simple greeting.
The event will take place at Hamptonne Country Life Museum at 12pm. After the ceremony bread and cheese will be served in the Cider barn.
Morris dancing will take place at The Elms in St Mary at 2.30pm.

A grey seal pup was rescued from rocks on St Ouen beach in Jersey over the Christmas period.
Experts say the infant, thought to be more than three weeks old, was showing signs of being underweight and had bite wounds on her back.
The British Divers Marine Life Rescue branch in the island decided to intervene after assessing the seal's chance of survival.
The female pup was captured and carried up La Pulente Beach in a special carrier and taken to New Era Veterinary Hospital in St Saviour.
The pup, named Elfina by rescuers, has since been transported to a specialist RSPCA hospital in the UK, where it has had treatment for its wounds.
