St. Stephen's Day honours the first Christian martyr...
stoned to death shortly after the Crucifixion.


There are different legends about St Stephen..

One is that hiding from his enemies in a bush...

he was betrayed by a chattering wren.


Another legend holds that during the Viking raids of
the 700's...

Irish soldiers were betrayed by a wren as they were
sneaking up on a Viking camp in the dead of night.

(Ask Monochrome...I think he was there).

A wren began to eat breadcrumbs left on the head of a drum...

and the rat-a-tat-tat of its beak woke the drummer...

who sounded the alarm and woke the camp.

leading to the defeat of the Irish soldiers.
