May Day

Snow day

Oh, don't worry, I am not in trouble. I am referring to today's date. It began as a pagan, celtic holiday. I have always for some reason loved May. It foretells sweet sunny days to come, fragrant flowers and fluffy clouds and my birthday. When I was very young I wanted to take part in a Maypole dance. Never did...

But it is also International Worker's day. It commemorates important milestones such as the eight hour work day and Saturday as part of the weekend and child labour laws. Things which we take for granted.

Happy May Day!
