What I think we should bear in mind though is that if we find it enjoyable, which I certainly do, then other people will as well. Those other people could well include those in past times as well as different places. All over the world countries in all stages of development have some sort of celebration of anything that they deem good, be it spring or passing of winter or a good harvest or whatever. Even though the May Day celebrations or Morris dancing or Wassailing may not be as traditional as some would have us believe I suspect that what we have today only replaced something that has been done before. Just my 2 pen'urth.
