Happy May Day!

Scotland & Ireland: Beltaine (Beltane)(or: "when the Sun enters 15° Taurus") on 1st or 3rd of May, from Scottish Gaelic bealltain; the Celtic May Day festival & sabat.

Also US Law Day, English first day of Summer

AND, May Day at Padstow:

        The maidens of Padstow, they might if they would,
         For Summer is a-come unto day,
        How happy are those little birds that merrily do sing
         On the merry morning of May.

                "The Padstow Night Song," ("Oss Oss Wee Oss")
                Wright & Jones, British Calendar Customs

Except in Padstow this year we celebrate on Monday as May Day falls on Sunday.

Thanks, Cats. The Happy File considers itself now corrected.

Can you post (or PM me) any risque or outright bawdy verses? Any about your own family (clean or bawdy)?
