Plough Monday History

Plough Monday serves to commemorate the medieval tradition of parading a plough through the streets in an attempt to get money from wealthy landowners. Plough Monday was traditionally the day that ploughboys were set to return to work but spent instead raising money for personal gain.

Plough Monday is celebrated on the first Monday after Epiphany or the first Monday after the 12 days of Christmas (The Twelfth Night).
