Some of these Yorkshire Christmas traditions date from the 17th century and many are more recent.
* Gather framed photos of loved ones not with you and place on table
* Have the candles on table lit by guest with darkest hair for good luck;
* Serve frumenty before your Christmas dinner. This is a cereal dish made of equal parts cracked wheat or barley mixed with cream and milk. Sweeten it to taste and add some salt. Bake in a low oven for many hours - this is an ancient Yorkshire Christmas dish.
* Everyone must taste the Christmas Cake to bring good luck on the household for the new year.
* Run through the streets with a small Christmas tree - this might be rather unusual if you are staying in a Yorkshire holiday cottage in the 21st century!
