May Day has fallen on hard times. The communists have claimed May 1st as their holiday, and many Christians denounce May Day as pagan. But I have fond childhood memories of Maypole dances and preparing little baskets of flowers to hang on neighbors' door knobs. In my mid-20th century childhood, we weren't communists, and we weren't pagans. We were welcoming spring and appreciating God's glorious creation. Is it my imagination or has the world grown snarky? Even if it has, I'll go out on a limb and wish you a Happy May Day!
