a little fun fact with our folkograf today. the 1st day of may. may day. otherwise known as international workers day in over 80 countries around the world. it is an actual public holiday in those countries…their labour day or worker’s day. the same holiday we celebrate the first monday of september. this holiday is in celebration of laborers and the working class whose contributions helped build strength and prosperity in their respective countries, as it is for us as well.
now, because this is america and we are who we are, there are also urban definitions to this rite of spring that i won’t repeat here, but let’s just say, urbanites who follow their dictionary believe this is the day outdoor hanky panky season begins! hey, why not right? if your bones don’t mind the damp ground and you’ve still got enough blood flow to toot your hoot…may day away i say!
so…what little morsels are available in my repertoire that i could possibly have to showcase such a day? well…let see what rhonda jeanne has up her sleeve…
first, i’ll begin with a nod to the working class of our friends across the pond in jolly ol’ england. cheers mates! enjoy your day off!
next…this is how may day was spent at my house a couple of years ago. very pretty flowers that year and a very entertaining fellow!
and lastly…ha! got ya. you thought i was gonna throw something in to celebrate making the may day hay while the sun did shine. sorry, you’ll have to use your imagination on that one!
Listen kiddos, let some sunshine into your lives. get out and celebrate the day, go to a may day festival or parade. i am, and i plan on having a great day oohing and awwing and meeting and greeting , and getting to know my neighbors. and most exciting, is having them get to know me, their hometown folkografer. remember now, make may day hay while the sun shines..♥♥ rhonda jeanne
