I've always considered May Day to be one of the most magical days of the year.
The thought of it certainly evokes a jumble of ideas & images in my head. Pagan rituals celebrating the growing season; the absolute relief of making it through another winter; Flora the goddess of flowers; the May Queen; the Maypole; Mayday (as in "help me" or "m'aider"); Anne Boleyn's world crashing down around her at a May Day Tournament. Did they really put the Queen of the May to death after the celebrations were over? Perhaps May magic is so powerful because of the dark & the light but at this time of year it is so easy to believe that the light is in ascendance!
