You never see any thing   going on now when we were children we would have a may Queen and all the children dressed up and we would go round to all the houses so many traditions are dying out Fudge

I used to love May Day when I was at school, and those traditions of the May Queen, etc. were very much in evidence.  Dressing up in whatever we could scrounge from Mom and parading throughout the neighbourhood was wonderful.   I couldn't wait to get through all my other classes at school just so we could practice weaving the different coloured streamers around the Maypole.   Different teams would vie against each other as to which of them would make the most lovely and even patterns as we danced and wove the colours around the pole.  Of course, that was 80 years ago or more now, and I'm so glad I was young then - we had so much more real fun and,  to us, exciting things to do and learn.   Now it's all computers and technology with heads buried in iPhones, sending indecipherable text messages, etc., and don't even see where they're going.   I wonder if they even know that beautiful Spring flowers are blooming and the trees are covered in lovely pink an white blossoms.  However, I do, and that makes life worth living in these awful times.   I'm a little late, but Happy May Day everyone!!

hi we were talking the other day about traditions and customs i think a lot of traditions  and local customs have gone ,and a few years time it will be hard to say what was a custom was and wasn't ,our people that live here and have gone abroad over seas can you you remember what you can remember , for instant shops closed on sunday pub opening times whit walks black knight pagent may queen ,penny for the guy wakes week did you take any customs or traditions with you ? or embraced the customs in the places you now live , i still let the new year in with a piece of coal slice of bread and a silver coin  ,also remember  summer nights sat on the door step talking to neighbours  :)  :D
