May Day, usually celebrated on May 1st. It is an ancient spring festival and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dancing, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities.
The earliest known May celebrations appeared with the Floralia, the festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers, held on April 27th during the Roman Republic era. When I was a kid, we celebrated May Day by dressing in flowered dresses, putting flowers in our hair and dancing the May Pole.
Needless to say, May Day still reminds me of flowers. If you’re lucky enough to have perfect spring weather on May 1, even better. Meanwhile, let’s enjoy the flowers together. We have plenty of great options here on Zatista.com!
