What’s a wassail (WAS-uhl)? It's a noun and a verb. During the holiday season you can imbibe a spicy wassail (noun) and then go out wassailing with a group of lively friends (here it’s a verb that means to roam from house to house while singing Christmas carols to unsuspecting neighbors that will hopefully not throw fruitcake at you). Warning: Alcohol inhibits your blood flow and won’t exactly keep you warm while belting out songs on a chilly night. But the bourbon content will make you hate the cold a little less. Happy wassailing!
