F*cking hell it's like the Bible belt at Christmas.

 

For the rest of us in the county, happy Yorkshire day. A no nonesense message to all.

 

What a shame I have to spend it (or any day for that matter) in Westhoughton. :(

HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY!

Apparently there is an event in Skipton this year. http://www.yorkshireday2013.co.uk/

 

And some famous Yorkshirians have recorded a song called "On Ilkla Moor Baht 'At". Watch it here BBC.

 

As I'm from the South what exactly does that mean??! In English? The word "baht"... To be honest I didn't understand most of the words...

The top of this page is a bit odd, "Yorkshire Day" with a Welsh flag next to it.

Of course, originally, all of England  was ours. Tragedy about having to give up Yorkshire, but the rest was no great loss.

The Wikipedia page has lyrics and translations.

 

AS Wikipedia says the tune was written for "While Shepherds Watched."  But I believe the words were first sung by a chapel choir outing to Dick Hudsons, a famous hostelry on the moors near Bingley.  Methodists may not drink but they weren't above an outing to a pub and a good feed.
