" Come Join Me...Come Join Me, Please..."

Spring was officially welcomed on Saturday, May 2nd at our beloved May Faire festival.

Traditionally, this festival marks what is considered the first day of summer in Celtic lands, and also is connected to the Roman Flora, the goddess of spring. There are select places in the world where young maidens rise early on May Day (May 1st) and wash their faces in the morning dew. Thus, ensuring a beautiful complexion for the rest of the year!

Our children celebrated with festivities of a different kind. The traditional May Pole, with colorful ribbons hanging, provided the means for skipping, dancing and singing - while, flower crowns adorned sun-kissed heads and bell & ribbon bracelets created a sound with every step.
