Celebrating May Day

Didja know that May Day was the traditional summer pagan holiday? Or that May is celebrated by the Roman Catholics as Mary's month and they honor the Blessed Virgin on May 1st? I didn't. I love Wikipedia. :)

Add that to everything I've been hearing about the political/sociological background of the day and I feel like "Where have I been all my life!"

I LOVE your tulips, Mad!

I absolutely adore the month of May here in Canada. It usually starts out cool but it doesn't take long for the trees to turn that gorgeous shade of new pale green, and the daffodils and tulips are bloomimg in the gardens, and before you know it, the weather turns warm.... and by the end of May, the summer weather is here.

Is it true Wikipedia is not reliable because "anybody can post anything" on it?? I thought it was legitimate resource, but was told no, kids are not allowed to use it for research papers, etc. But is it generally reliable?
