May First is coming!
There is the Maypole dance and many other rituals. A book called "Festivals, Family, & Food" http://www.amazon.com/Festivals-Family-Food-Diana-Carey/dp/095070623X provides lots of ideas for truly enjoying festivals throughout the year.
In our local Homeschool Art Class, we are learning the maypole dance ritual and a beautiful song that goes along with it. Did you know there is also a tradition of making gifts and giving them to neighbors?
You an make your own maypole by finding a large (6-8 foot) branch from a tree and tying long ribbons to it. Stick it in the ground and see what transpires.
There is so much fun to be had....
