The first of May—it brings more than the promises of blooming flowers, it brings the historic celebration of May Day.
The origin of May Day dates back to the ancient times of the Druids on the British Isles. A festival known as Beltane was thought to be the most important day of the year, because it divided the year in half. When the Romans took over the British Isles, the five-day celebration of Floralia overtook previous rituals in celebrating seasonal change. This celebration was devoted to Flora, the goddess of flowers. Eventually the traditions and rituals of Floralia were woven in with those of Beltane to create May Day—the ultimate celebration of spring!
Whether you stick to tradition or make your own, these are four ways to join the celebration.
