Time Ceremony

The infamous and mysterious Time Ceremony, during which students of Merton College run backwards, arm-in-arm and in formal academic attire, around the Fellows' Quad of the College...all while drinking large quantities of port. The ceremony serves to maintain the integrity of the space-time continuum during the transition from British Summer Time to Greenwich Mean Time - and also to spoof other Oxford ceremonies! [England, 2015]
