Cheese Shaped Box To Celebrate Whit Monday Cheese Rolling TraditionsMay 28, Pentecost Monday

Pentecost (Whitsunday) celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit in the form of flames to the followers of Jesus, as recorded in the New Testament. Jesus had told them to wait until the Spirit came to them.

Ten days after ascension, 50 days after the resurrection, the Spirit came.

In Gloucestershire, England, this holiday is often referred to as ‘Bread and Cheese Day’ because of a very strange custom that takes place on this day.

On Whit Monday, basketfuls of bread and cheese are thrown from a wall near the old castle, to be scrambled for in a lane below. The locals have been hurling bread and cheese since the 13th century.

After rolling three double Gloucester cheeses around the church, one is cut up and shared amongst bystanders and the other two are rolled down a steep hill.

Cheese rolling also takes place in other areas around England.

It’s the perfect occasion to make a Cheese Shaped Gift Box for family and friends.
