The laws of the knights were these: your rest at night. At everything, try to win honour and a name for honesty. Defend the poor and weak. Help them that cannot defend themselves. Do nothing to hurt or offend anyone else. Be prepared to fight in the defence of your country. Work for honour rather than profit. Never break your promise. Rather die honest than live shamelessly.

the wassail bowl with toast floating on top. Hence, drinking the toast. Boars Head - Traditionally the heart of the Christmas feast. Mouth propped open with an apple, the head was brought in to fanfare and special carol. Its origin is Psalm 80, in which Satan is the boar out of the wood. The head of the slain boar, paraded about the Great Hall, showed defeat of Satan by the newborn Christ child. The master of the house would take an oath upon it to perform a charitable deed, often others would follow suit. The Twelve Days of Christmas - Known liturgically as

Epiphany, represents the traditional time of the Magi journey to worship the Christ child. The twelve days were a time of great feasting, celebration, singing, carols, and general merry making. Coat of Arms Heraldry the art of blazoning and marshalling a coat of arms By 1400 A.D., bearing

a coat of arms had become a prerequisite to participation in a tournament, and due to the importance of social standing in such pageants, a coat of arms also became a mark of noble status http://www.fleurdelis.com/meanings.htm
