Happy May Day !

April 30th, 2014

How are you preparing for spring’s celebrations….or the string of festive days that in fact began with April’s late Easter this year?  Now we’ll have  Muguet, Lily of the Valley in delicate tribute  sprigs for May Day – sold in village squares (some, still!) across France.   But is this the tradition in Germany, Italy or Spain?  In Scotland or Denmark?  While I wonder about these customs and chill a sparkling wine for a May Day lunch, my wishes for you all are simple:

Have a festive May Day, and….. Hauskaa Vappua*!

As the *Finns are already celebrating May Day this evening – as is their custom.
