Titera’s Tidbit: Shivaree
In the Middle Ages, one way to express displeasure with a neighbor was to hire a band of urchins to stand before his house to bang on pots & pans, making a ruckus that the French called a charivari. It was so common a disturbance the Council of Trent banned it in 1563 under pain of excommunication. In England, it was called rough music. The custom survived in the Appalachians, where a newlywed couple would be treated to a shivaree.
