May Day Festival

We celebrated May Day today. The pole full of colours and the children and adults around it looked so beautiful.  The children all had a blast playing with the ribbons, helping in gathering wood and adding it to the fire…especially ‘the fireworks’ (wild asparagus).

We had also some musical instruments which we played while everyone went round the pole.  We had a picnic lunch at the site, played hide and seek, ball and ran around enjoying the company.

It was a wonderful day! I feel lifted and fulfilled.

May day, also known as the feast of Beltane – marks the beginning of Summer.
