It is telling people how they should behave. On a cultural level, this is a Celtic feast that existed thousands of years before our Welsh saint arrived. He assimilated these old customs into his own.BTW it should be a turnip, not a pumpkin.

The Swedes were fairly docile; it was the Danes and Norvegians were awful. But Brian Boru kicked them out in 1014 2014 celebrationQuoteI hope it will be remembered in a respectful way, with an acknowledgement that on Good Friday, April 23, 1014, almost 10,000 people lost their lives at Clontarf. QuoteAmbassadors from Denmark and Norway will also be afforded an opportunity to make suggestions of how a co-ordinated commemoration can be developed to reflect the influence of the Vikings in Ireland and the Battle of Clontarf as a defining event in Irish history.Nothing short of a formal apology will be accepted. Especially from the Danes.
