If I were in a more folk dance-y place, I would have danced up the sun with the Morris Dancers today. In lieu of that, here are some videos to show the ridiculous way we welcome the coming of summer: Dancing! At sunrise! With jingle bells! And hankies! (Also, giant sticks!)








Anyway, Merry May, y'all! Enjoy the sun & being awesome vegans!

We ordinarily love going to May morning in Cambridge, but Robert's teaching today and I'm up to my ears in exam prep; next year for sure!

We do May Day at my work with Morris dancers this Sunday. They are super needy but it's all in good fun! Except last year when a bee kicked my asparagus. But we have a May pole and everything.

What is with May? I never knew it was a special month for any reason. And then on the radio this morning they announced that May is Pleasure Yourself month...What the What?

May is traditionally associated with the beginning of summer, rebirth, etc.

I always knew May Day to be a day for protest and demonstrations. I guess the folks next door at Goldman Sachs thought the same thing, because the place was surrounded by barriers and cops with batons. I gather nothing happened though.
