Mayday, mayday! Okay… it’s not that kind of mayday but today is May 1st and that means today is May Day! What is May Day? Glad you asked! It is a public holiday that is an ancient northern hemisphere spring celebration. Yes, the official first day of spring was back in March, however, the first day of May is when many cultures throughout the world celebrate the start of spring. Traditional celebrations includes dancing around the Maypole, singing, and eating cake… eating cake may be our favorite part of the day!
While there aren’t many Maypoles hanging around (although, you can always erect your own!) there are still many ways you can celebrate today. Here are just a few great ideas to get you started…
Grab a basket full of delicious foods, a blanket, a few friends and head to the park! Spring weather is ideal for enjoying a picnic.
You don’t have to tell us twice to get up and dance! We break out impromptu dancing on the regular. May Day is just another reminder to get up and move! Get a little silly and take a break from the seriousness of your day. Besides, it’s May Day you have to dance!
Toast to May Day
What is May Day without May Punch… less fun is what it is! It’s a nice way to wrap up a long day of celebrating spring. This punch includes fresh strawberries, blueberries, white wine, and champagne! Sounds heavenly! The full recipe for May Punch can be found here. You can also make this sans the alcohol by using white grape juice and club soda.
Let Them Eat Cake!
It’s just not a proper holiday without cake, right? The key to making a May Day cake is in the decorating. Simply make (or buy, we’ll never tell) your favorite kind of cake and placing a maypole in the center of the cake and sprinkle lots of colorful sprinkles all around. To make the maypole use a skewer and hot glue different colored ribbons around it. Ta-da!
