Burning of the Socks Party?

Anyone do this?
Vernal equinox.....any suggestions?
I assume best at the water, but if foul weather prevails, ok to do at home?
Any good incantations or prayers that must be recited?
Rum mandatory! Any preferred labels?

It's a tradition in Eastport, MD (across Spa Creek from Annapolis) on 21 Mar every year.

...and I would say that this winter has blown.
Ever notice with boat plumbing that everything either sucks or blows?
Burning my socks? I don't think so. At least not while I'm within sniffing distance.
I do hope to be there at the equinox though.
Does anyone know why the 'ceremony' involves the burning of socks? Made up answers are ok too.

I don't know about sock burning, But am still miffed about missing all of the Bra Burning Parties because they were being held while I was at sea. Now that is a bummer.
