Happy May Day
Happy May Day! May Day is an ancient spring festival that occurs on the first day of May and has involved dancing, singing, cakes and other festivities. Originally a pagan holiday to honor the Roman goddess of Flowers, it later developed into a secular celebration honoring springtime fertility.
Festivities include crowning a May Queen and dancing around a Maypole. Another tradition is to leave a May Day basket of flowers and other spring goodies on a neighbor’s door. At the very least, it is the acknowledgement that Spring has arrived!
