    maypole.jpg

    When I was at university our big celebration was May Day. It was a tradition going back to John Ruskin and was a huge charity and celebration event with a May Queen, a huge charity fair and a May ball.

    So the challenge this month is in tribute to that.

    The elements you need to include ... and yes they are dastardly because ... well it’s all in the name ... are as follows and remember this is an all or nothing challenge. All elements will net you 30 points, some elements only will net you nothing.

    We always had a traditional maypole ... yes with dancing... so you need to use ribbons ... more than one

    There was always a crown made of flowers for the May queen so you need to use flowers on your page

    There was always a ball in the evening so you need to use circles ... more than one ... on your page

    Music was a very important part of the event and so you need to use a song title as your title and lyrics from a song ... doesn’t have to be the same one ... must feature on your page.

    The celebration was about people so you need to include photo/s of people

    Gathering was an important element so there needs to a gathering of embellishments - at least three clusters of embellishments on your page

    To earn your 30 bonus points your page must be uploaded to the UKS gallery and linked here by midnight on 31st May

    Go on I dare you

    My MIL had this tradition at her University and recently unearthed a YouTube video of the parade thing back in 1966.

    I thought I was going to struggle with this one, but then it just all came together.
