Bringing in the May
"In medieval England, people would celebrate the start of spring by going out to the country or woods—"going a-maying"—and gathering greenery and flowers, or "bringing in the may.". . . .According to Shmuel Ross (found it online!).
Hope you get to dance around a Maypole today!!! (Or, at least, smell some flowers).
And before you get too dizzy......click on over to Honeysuckle Lane...Lana's lovely site:
She has sweet offerings for May and she also has a blog if you would like to leave her a note:
"Spring has many beauties, and May is a fresh and blooming month....."
