The Many Faces of May Day

May Day is a day with many meanings – to children distribute May baskets to their neighbors.  Workers in many countries celebrate May 1 as International Labour Day.  It’s also Law Day in the U.S., this year honoring John Adams, the nation’s first lawyer-president.

And in Minneapolis May 1 marks the day on which In the Heart of the Beast bursts forth with a monumental parade followed by a magnificent festival of music, art, great food and a chance to crawl out of the winter doldrums.  The festival goes on till sunset – though it’s hard to tell when the sun sets when there is no sun….Still, it’s not too late!

Spring forth – it’s May and Spring must be  just around the corner!
