Happy May 1st — May Day!
May Day is a public holiday typically celebrated on May 1st.
Historically May Day is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures, and celebrated with dances, singing, and cake. Dancing around a maypole is also connected with May Day.
Mrs Farrell, my hatmaker, remembers dancing around the maypole when a child in England.
I would like to dance around a maypole if I can find one. How fun. I think!
In the meantime, I will be celebrating May Day with a hat made of pink and yellow flowerettes, forming a lovely openwork pillbox effect with some of the flowerettes caught in my mane.
Speaking of my mane, I had it styled specifically for the day to glorious effect. Don’t you think so? Let’s take a look.
This hat was created for Spring / Summer 2017 as a specialist design, shown around a bit but not worn. Imagine that Hattingdon fans! I don’t seem to have occasion to wear them all.
Be well. Stay safe. Love you bunches and forever.
