8th January

Elvis Presley’s birthday (1935), famous for Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Hound Dog, All Shook Up, Jailhouse Rock, and A Little Less Conversation

Plough Sunday (2017) – the beginning of the agricultural year: the first Sunday after Epiphany. Decorated ploughs are brought to church to be blessed, and prayers are said to bless the land. Farming starts properly tomorrow on Plough Monday.
