Instead of taking place on Monday (4 May), May Day (this year) will be on Friday (8 May), to mark VE Day itself (Victory in Europe Day).
Therefore, as many people as possible will have the opportunity to remember and honour our heroes of the Second World War. It will be the 75th Anniversary of World War II, and it may be the last chance for many of us to say THANK YOU to the WW2 veterans (now in their 90’s), while they are still alive. A very special day indeed! Unfortunately, this has now been tainted by the Corona Virus outbreak, but I hope we can still afford some time to show our respects.
It is common practice for people in France to give each other a posy of Lily-of-the-valley today…….. for Good Luck, and as a symbol of Spring!
Sounds like a lovely idea.
Why not give it a go: Pop them in a glass jar (with some twine wrapped around it. Leave them for your elderly neighbours……Happiness in a jar. A perfect THANK YOU! x
