May Day

May Day

The first Monday in May or May Day as it is known was made officially a bank holiday in England in 1978.  It’s origin however dates back to Roman times when it was a festival to celebrate the goddess Flora, to bring fertility to the soil and good weather for the crops. Prior to this it is thought there was a pagan ritual to celebrate the same things in early Britain.

Traditionally there is a May Queen, country dancing with a May Pole for the girls and Morris dancing for the men.

Nowadays we enjoy the 3-day weekend and hope for sunshine!

Do have a look at Entertaining Babies for some fantastic games for your little ones – if the weather holds out why not try a scavenger hunt to make a trip to the park more exciting – there are lots of ideas on our website.
