Description

Boxing day on the Isle of Man, is often reserved for a very special but unusual tradition.

Communities come together across the island to dance and sing in the streets around “the king of all birds” who is paraded around on a pole.

Hunt the Wren, as it is known on the island has become one of the most popular yet more unusual Manx traditions in practice today.

The practice dates back to Pagan times and is centred on the wren bird, which is hunted and then danced through the streets on a special pole.

This £2 coin was issued in 2018 by The Isle of Man to celebrate the Manx tradition.
