Thread Name: Folklore: Songs to do with May Day
Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs to do with May Day
Of course May Day is really a pagan ceremony and all May songs can be traced back to the Druids, blah, blah blah ... fertility ceremonies ...Green Man, blah, blah, blah ... Sir James Frazer, death and resurrection ... Golden Bough, blah, blah, blah ... Ahhh, Morris dancing round the Maypole, blah, blah, blah ... fertility ceremonies!
Gosh, I'm glad I've cleared that up ... Any questions?
