Can anyone explains me the meaning of this sentence: "Spare away spirits" done on May Day in Britain means:

A- BRING IN THE SPRING

B- NOT TO DRINK ALCOHOL

C- KEEP BAD THINGS AWAY

D- SAVE SPIRITS

Thank you!

It means absolutely nothing to me, it doesn't seem to be natural English but I'm not a Brit. Are you sure it's not "scare"?


My grandmother had the expression, "Spare the rod, spoil the child."

I'm British and English is my first language.

I am 99.9% sure the question is a misspelling of "scare away the spirits".
