Herne Bay Cartoon Festival 2022
We always aim for a sea related theme and this year’s we are choosing “Crossing the Line”
The Derivation is based on an ancient nautical ritual that is still practiced today. When a sailor, crew member or passenger crossed the equator for the first time it was traditional to hold a ceremony to which King Neptune and various other mythological characters participated. Today the pagan trimmings have all but been dispatched and have been replaced by a booze fuelled celebration.
The Definition – to start behaving in an unacceptable way, for example by getting involved in something extreme or anti-social.
