MAY DAY



The month of May has many traditions and celebrations in many cultures. Some countries in Europe (Ireland, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Romania) and North America (Canada and the United States) have special spring celebrations. 
Originally May Day was celebrated on 1st May, but for the convenience of the general public, many May Day activities have now been moved to the new May Day holiday on the first Monday of the month. This Monday is a bank holiday, a day off school and work in the United Kingdom.


                                  MAY QUEEN
The May Queen is a girl who rides or walks at the front of a parade for May Day celebrations. She wears a white long dress to symbolise purity and a flowers crown

MAYPOLE DANCING

It's a popular dance. Some of the children dance in one direction while others dance the opposite way around the pole. They hold a coloured ribbon in their hand.

This is the beautiful result of expert dancers and lots of practice.

MORRIS DANCING

It's an old traditional dance. There are usually six or eight men or women arranged in two lines or in a circle. The dancing is accompanied by accordion players or drums. Morris dancers wear different clothes depending on the part of the country in which they dance. They are often dressed in white with coloured belts across their chests.
