    Default Burning Judas

    I lived in Greta Street in the Dingle (just off High Park Street) burning Judas was very common !, yet when we moved to Aigburth no one had heard of it.I was quite nice to have two occasions in a year when we would all gather around a bommy !

    I'd never heard of it before until it was mentioned here on the forum some time ago. (I live in Anfield).

    I've always tried to tell people about Judas burning in Liverpool but fellow scousers thought I was slightly insane!! I lived in High Park Street (between Greta Street and Ouse Street and all my brothers used to "play Judas" as they called it. They were often chased by the police in the early hours of Good Friday morning and would run into somebody's backyard and lock the door.On one occasion the lad whos backyard was chosen was a bit slow and was left hammering on the door. Happy days.

    How nice to hear from someone else who remembers this event !, did you live by Monaghans the sweet/paper shop ?I probably passed your house lots of times, on my way home from St Silas, I lived next to the diary (by the entry) in Greta Street.

    There is a book about customs of Britain and it is mentioned - only know to be done in Dingle particularly around the Holy Land, Moses Street, David Street etc..

    I seem to remember that Judas was burned but never saw it. It seemed to be VERY early in the morning.

    There are two threads on this. They should be merged.

    They should. This seems to be happening a lot lately, threads on subjects we have recently discussed.

    I would be interested in knowing the name of the book mentioned here. I have the little book called Liverpool Oddities but I would like to have the Britain one too

    I think there has been way enough said about Ringo recently for it to be spreading to other threads. Leave him be. He did nothing wrong.

    OK then, no more Ringo jibes. There was a whole thread which turned into Gerry Marsden stayed in Liverpool and Ringo left!!!!! Poor Richie, living in that mansion with his pool and sunshine every day. His friends and family all in California with him. Living a lovely life. Longing for the Dingle. My heart aches for him
