The ‘Daft Days’ was the medieval Scottish name for the ‘Twelve days of Christmas’. As we head into the New Year we invite you to come along on this wonderful walk, revisiting the footsteps of our medieval ancestors.

This guided walk, led by the Live Borders Museum team, will take us to key points in Peebles where we will discover how people lived and celebrated the winter festivals in the past.

Discover the traditions of yuletide with stories of turkey, trees and tinsel!

Why was Christmas banned as a public holiday? and what was the importance of the yule log?

Join us on this midwinter walk then return to the museum for a taste of some old-fashioned festive food and drink.
