The Haxey Hood is a traditional event throughout the civil parish of Haxey that focuses on a contest at the village of Haxey in North Lincolnshire, England, on the afternoon of 6 January, the Twelfth Day of Christmas (though if this falls on a Sunday, it is held on 5 January).
It is a kind of large rugby football scrum (called the “sway”), which pushes a leather tube (called the “hood”) to 1 of 4 pubs, where it remains until the following year’s game.
