May Day or may day?

May Day is sort of a fun play on words - of course, if we are talking about it today, you know that we are discussing the five day festival celebrating flowers and trees. Children are likely at school singing around a maypole, tied with colorful ribbons and streamers. These are all left overs of the old European traditions. May Day also is a term used to indicate an emergency. The saying 'may day' comes from French beginnings meaning 'help me'.

My suggestion for May Day is that we combine the British celebration with the French request for help and use this day as a day for helping and appreciating others. Bake a batch of cookies and bring some to a neighbor, shut in, or patient at a nursing home. Pick up the phone and call someone you have not spoken to in a long time. Treat your children to an hour at the park complete with singing, dancing, and laughter.

Whatever you choose to do today, do it with happiness and appreciation and you may find yourself celebrating may day every day!
