...Tomorrow.

What does may day mean to you?

Does your country have certain traditions for this celebration?

Here in Finland, people just get together, have fun and get drunk as fuck for no apparent reason. Just like every other Finnish celebration.

That's why I'd like to hear the views of people from other countries.

For tomorrow? What happened to April 30th?


It's the eve of May Day to be exact.

I also forgot the part about the fun-fairs and costumes and shit, but that's just an excuse to go outside and get drunk with the masses.

Grey mornings? Pfft, it's like 22 degrees tomorrow.

Don't be acting all swedish on me.

You should come over tomorrow and have an extended Valborg, första maj or whatever you mongrels call Vappu.

Vad säger du?

we do this thing where you have a pole and like all these ribbons coming down from the top then you have a "may queen" stand in the middle of the pole and you do a ceremonial dance and she gets all wrapped up in the ribbons then you take the sacrificial dagger and stab her to death while she's helpless to appease the gods and the new crop in the spring will be just wonderful.

M..May? Day?

May is a month where I come from O_o.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

Ah, trodde du menade ett svenskt åbo.

Använder du en internetöversättare, förresten?

so did anyone go to any good protests? i went to an equal rights rally that my friend helped organize. it was mostly about latino rights and immigration, but they trotted out the old dead horse of iraq and tibet. all in all it was pretty good. i still have an armband on for solidarity.

how about you guys? is the pit for social change?

I have no opinion on this matter.

Here at St. Andrews (university town) all the students gather on the beach, have barbeque's, drink, smoke and then at first light run into the North Sea. It's the 'may dip' and it removes a curse so you can pass your exams. Or something.
