Happy May Day from Oxford

Happy May Day to all my readers.

As you may know, May Day is celebrated with some ferocity in Oxford – drinking, dancing, dressing up. It starts with a choir greeting the dawn from the top of Magdalene Tower and continues with dancing in the  streets.

It's been raining all night here – thunder, lightning, hail – so it's pretty soggy. We saw this charming wet bull in St Giles at about 8.30 am. Need I say more...

  1. In California, it's May 5th that's the big day -- Cinco de Mayo, with barbecue (or rather barbacoa), flowers, parades,, tequila and beer!
