Here in the US May Day is celebrated by making and giving May Baskets, filled with flowers and candy; by dancing around a May Pole, weaving ribbons over and under the dancers that you pass. These are old old traditions, being lost now, but some of us are continuing to keep them alive.
Brightly burning fires, maypoles, baskets of flowers -- all ways of celebrating Spring's new green, of celebrating having made it through another long dark cold winter . . . .
I'd love to hear what F Blog readers around the world do to celebrate this night and day, and what mythologies and stories contribute to their traditions. Maybe ever a photo or two!
