4. "The Wassail Song"
You might not think you know what the hell wassail is (we didn't) or what "The Wassail Songsounds like, but trust us -- you know both. Wassail is basically a hot-mulled cider, originally part of an ancient English drinking ritual to bring about a good harvest. The real question is: Why don't we do this anymore? Any ritual that involves drinking should stand the test of time, so let's reinstate this wide tradition for next year's mango harvest.

3. "Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy"
Most of us have never come in contact with a sugar plum, despite countless recitations of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. It's a small, oval-shaped candy made from dried fruit. Yeah, doesn't sound so hot to us either, but it's been around for hundreds of years, so apparently someone is into it.
