It also marks the first heat, spring in bloom, balmy sunny evenings, and days off.

Did you know that May Day is traditionally linked to Earth Day?

The

"May"

means etymologically the

"green branches growing in May"

.

We planted in the night of April 30 to May 1

"or even on any other date, a tree or branch wrapped in front of the home of a person (girl to be married, mayor, etc.) whom we (wanted) to honor."

This tradition was forged after the Roman festival which took place at the same time, in honor of

Maia "Italic deity, daughter of Faunus and wife of Vulcan."

It continued until the 19th century in the Drôme.

At that time,
