May Day, What Do You Remember?
Being born pre 1950, we celebrated May Day at school all my school years.
Mom helped us gather a flower or two and put it in a piece of newspaper and attach it to a neighbors door.
At school we all had to wind the ribbons around the MayPole. Having taught my children to do the same on May Day, I wonder if they remember? Schools stopped doing it and the tradition died.
Today they imply that it was a Political Event so not allowed.
Here are some links that state it as I remember it, and think it a shame we do not continue to do it.
It has to be one of the older celebrated events by peoples everywhere that does not constitute blood shed and pain. It recommends fun and love and caring for others
