Did you know May Day has roots in pagan Anglo-Saxon customs and the pagan festival Beltane, which marks the beginning of summer.
Typically, on May Day villages and towns across the UK now mark the beginning of springtime fertility.
This would usually be celebrated with large gatherings of communities, villages holding fetes and other fun activities. The May Queen is also crowned on May Day, and often sees local schoolgirls compete for the crown in honour of Flora, the Roman goddess.
But where does maypole dancing come into all this?
Maypole dancing is another tradition celebrated on May Day, and is seen as a way of saying farewell to winter. Even though summer does not begin until June, May Day is a celebration of things coming to life.
Enjoy your weekend.
