Happy May Day to you too Kgirl!
I always fondly think of my childhood on May Day. It was a very special day in my small Catholic school with only 128 students. The beautiful campus was on a hill overlooking the Pacific and the name was The Academy of St. Catherine by the Sea". Sadly, it no longer exists.
May Day was in honor of the Blessed Virgin and the crowning of flowers for her statue was in a lovely Eucalyptus grotto on the campus. The singing procession of children were dressed in their Sunday best, and all the girls wore wreaths of fresh flowers and ribbons for their hair. I remember so well how my Mom would pick tiny pink buds of Cecile Brunners roses to make my wreath along with streamers of pink ribbons. All the families were invited for the celebration, and I was part of it for 12 years.
Sadly, I don't have one single picture from those May Days but I do have my precious mind pictures.
