Default SBVC149 - May Day

May 1st is sometimes called May Day. What exactly is May Day? In medieval England, people would celebrate the start of spring by gathering greenery and flowers, or "bringing in the may". Another English tradition is the maypole. It would be decorated with greenery, ribbons and bright colors. People would dance around it with the ribbons weaving in and out causing the ribbons to braid.

My challenge to you this week is to "bring in the may" on your page. Use greenery, ribbons and flowers to celebrate spring.

My sample: Disney topiaries

SBVC149 Gallery: May Day


Be sure to add the keyword, SBVC149, when you upload to the gallery and add a link in this thread so we can see your May Day page!

I'll have to look through my pics. I'm still working on Disney and Renaissance pages so maybe I'll find something. Those topiaries are so neat! The only ones we saw in July were in the Magic Kingdom and then at Hollywood Studios.

I remember as a kid, dancing around a maypole and weaving around it.....DGS' class didn't do anything special for May Day that I heard about.
