Often people welcome in the May. On the first of May at dawn, people stand to greet the sunrise.
They also dance around the Maypole (I did this as a child, and also I Wassailed). This was originally a fertility rite apparently, I have to say I don’t know much about it apart from that, and of course the dance created a beautiful pattern with the ribbons. I remember we had to reverse our steps to “unwind” the ribbon.
When I saw in the May in a few years ago, it was with the Blackhorse Morris, at Whitstable Beach. Jack o’ the Green was seen too along with the Mayor and partner ! Sadly I can’t find any pictures of the event, but it was great to see the sunrise at 5 am!
May you have a great month!
