In the month of May, England, Wales, Scotland and neighboring Ireland celebrate Spring Bank Holiday that falls on the last Monday of the month.
This year it happens to fall on the 25th May, 2020. Previously this holiday was called Whit Monday in 1971. Later it came to be known as Spring Bank Holiday. The date falls 50 days after the Easter Sunday and is commemoration of the descent of Holy Spirit on the followers of Jesus and Apostles at the time when they were celebrating Feast of Weeks in Jerusalem.
Even though there is no festivity as such on that day, it serves as a break from school and work and results in a long weekend. Nonetheless, in Brockworth, Gloucestershire there is a different kind of fun celebration that is attended from people from all over the world.
This fun event is the Cheese-rolling and Wake on Cooper’s Hill. Gloucestershire is famous for its hard, round cheese ball. A similar ball of around 3-4 kg that has wooden rim and decorated with ribbons is rolled down the Cooper’s Hill and the competitors are expected to run behind it and reach the finish line. The person who crosses the finish line is awarded the cheese ball. The cheese ball that has a head-start of a second, rolls down rapidly down the slope at almost 70 miles per hour (110 km/hr).
Being a solid mass, it causes injuries to anyone that comes in its path. Thus, one has to chase it very carefully.
