May: A Month of Cheerfulness, New Romance, and to celebrate Mothers Day on you’re dry erase painted wall

For centuries, in cultures around the world, May has been a month associated with the return of spring, the pleasures of youth, merry-making, and newfound love. In many nations, the fun and energetic spirit of May is embodied in May Day, usually celebrated on May 1st or the first Monday in May. This ancient celebration marks the first day of summer in some cultures and is still a traditional spring holiday in countries across Europe, such as the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, and Finland. Dancing around a tall wooden pole called a May Pole, group singing, and eating cake are typical parts of May Day festivities.

Another widely known May Day tradition still observed in Europe and North America is the crowning of the Queen of May. In the British Isles and the British Commonwealth countries, the May Queen embodies May Day, springtime, and the summer season. The May Queen is a girl chosen to ride or walk at the head of a parade during May Day celebrations while wearing a white gown that symbolizes purity and a crown of flowers. Her functions are to start off the May Day celebrations and to deliver a speech before the May Pole dancing begins.
