Celebrating May Day

This week, I am getting together with my girlfriends for dinner and some girl talk. I am excited to see them and catch up on the current events.
When I wrote down the date or actually when I entered the date of Thursday on my iPhone to meet my gal pals – I then realized it is May 1st or rather May Day.

May 1st (May Day) is celebrated in many places around the world. The annual traditions may vary from country to country; however one thing we all have in common about May Day is celebrating with flowers. When I was a small child in the 1960’s attending Catholic School in California; a popular activity was to bring flowers to school and decorate a May Day pole with colorful flowers and ribbons. I have fond memories of asking my Mom and Dad for some flowers from the Garden to bring to school.
we also would bring flowers to lay at the Virgin Mary statue at school – that was over 50 years ago and I can still remember it vividly. What memories do you have of May Day?
