May Calendar

Happy May!  The calendar for this month is a Maypole, a symbol of the beginning of Summer.  Maypole dancing is a form of folk dance originating in England, Sweden, and Germany and performed on May 1.  It’s believed it was originally performed as part of a pagan fertility ritual, but has now evolved to a celebration of the return of Summer.  Maypole dancing is still practiced in Europe as well as parts of the US as part of May Day.  The May Calendar is a tribute to the beginning of Summer!

May Day

Usually at this time of year, everyone is ready for Summer.  May Day is held on May 1 and anticipates the coming Summer months.  Depending on where you live, there are different kinds of activities from food and dancing to crowing a May queen.  Another tradition is to give May Day baskets (I posted about that last year).  Even if you don’t celebrate May Day or Maypole dancing, I think we can all agree that May means Summer is almost here!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
