I Want To Enjoy May Day

The first of May is a special day for me and others. It is the end of winter here . It is also when I try to get to England to visit a village where May 1 is celebrated in the tradititional way. So far I have not had this experience but will keep trying to get there.  Apparently a Queen of May is chosen from young teen girls to lead a parade . Dancing around the Maypole is part of it. No doubt drinking is also part of it. Sounds like a great way to welcome summer. We are short of traditional ways to welcome summer here in North America,

To CuriousSgt, The older you get, the more you belong to history, so it's only natural that you like it more. One thing to do is to join, or found, a local historical society.
