Bonefire mulled wine is a seasonal beverage that reflects the Celtic traditions of Old Hallows Eve. During festivals, Bonefires were used in village celebrations to keep evil spirits away and to survive the night. It was not uncommon to burn the bones of livestock and sacrifice other farm animals. There was only safety around the firelight, and the village knew better than to wanter into the darkness. Packaged in shredded paper and wooden kindling, the mulled wine is set on fire to prepare the drink. The flames both heat the wine and create a firelight of safety.
