January 22, 2010, Newsletter Issue #241: Holiday Costumes for May and June

Tip of the Week

For ideas for holiday costumes for May, try dressing up as the Queen of the May for May Day. This is an ancient holiday where it became the custom in England to gather Hawthorn blossoms along country lanes early in the morning on the first day of May. The blossoms were used to crown a pretty young village girl Queen of the May. Or you can dress up as the Maypole, which were really large trees brought in from the forest. In the middle ages, English villages would compete with one another for the tallest Maypole. Dancing around the decorated Maypole was a popular custom. For June holiday costume ideas, dress as an American flag or Betsy Ross on Flag Day. She is thought of as our first American flag maker.
