May Day - May 1, 2021
“If we had no winter the spring would not be so pleasant” -Anne Bradstreet
May Day is a celebration of welcoming the change of season and new beginnings. Throughout the years, there have been many different meanings and festivities with the purpose to express welcoming a new season. In the 19th century, May Day took on a new meaning, as International Workers’ Day grew out of the 19th-century labor movement for worker’s rights and an eight-hour workday in the US. Regardless of what the general meaning of May Day was, people worldwide gifted their loved ones fresh flowers, to share the new bloom of spring with their loved ones. To keep this wonderful tradition alive, here are some spring JLF arrangements!
