I grew up in Bradford.
As a child, I knew them as WESLEYBOBS.
Does anyone from anywhere else call them this ?
Those who know what they are, well, know.

My mum (from Wakefield) used to call them wessel cups. I often wondered if this was a corruption of wassail cups (or something like that).
Wesleybobs on Christmas trees? Honest? I grew up in Bradford too. Don't remember Wesleybobs. Wellybobs, yes - just the things for today's weather. Now there was I thinking that perhaps Wesleybobs were worn by Methodists! You certainly learn on this website.
