May Day originated as a pagan holiday, celebrated as Beltane in Celtic regions and Walpurgis Night in Germanic regions. It was a festival to mark the end of Winter and the fertility of Spring. The remnants of these traditional celebrations are still practiced in many European countries - May Boughs, May Trees and May Poles. Here are some listings I found that remind me of May Day and what it stands for.
