Horned Dance/Deermen Ceremony - In Staffordshire England, the Horndance/Ceremony of the Deermen is held today at Abbots Bromley. Originally the Dance was held over 3 days, but is now held on the 1st Monday, after the 1st Sunday (Wake Sunday), after the 4th of September which places it between the 5th and 12th of the month. Its occurrence correlates with the day of the Horned One observed near this time. In olden days, it was held two weeks before the autumnal equinox.
