In pre-Christian Europe, May Day was an important celebration of Spring triumphing over Winter. The pagan fertility gods were honored to bless the coming season with good crops. With lots of noise and bonfire to drive away evil spirit, summer is welcomed. The darkness makes way for sunlight. In Finland, we celebrate this day with carnival, balloons and champagne, but why not incorporate some flowers there as well?
