May Day on May 1st is a northern hemisphere spring festival when dancing, singing and eating cake are part of the festivities … sounds good to us! May Day is celebrated differently around European countries but here in UK can be most associated with towns and villages celebrating springtime fertility and revelry with village fetes and community gatherings. Seeding has been completed by this date and it was convenient to give farm labourers a day off. Perhaps the most significant of the traditions is the maypole, around which traditional dancers circle with ribbons. Not forgetting Morris dancers and the crowning of the May Queen.
