It's Tutti Day today

Two 'Tutti Men' in the Berkshire market town of Hungerford will be collecting kisses today from each lady of the houses they visit for Tutti Day today.

It is thought the celebration dates back to medieval times when 'Tutti men' would collect the 'head penny' from each householder on the second Tuesday after Easter. The tradition of dressing up and visiting around 100 properties with 'common rights' is linked to the end of the financial year.
