Day, May 1st: Beltane at Dawn in Princeton!!
of the most beautiful sights you'll ever see: Each year, at dawn on the
Princeton Battlegrounds, Morris Dancers and Molly Dancers wake up the
Spring. This was their twenty-sixth year. For ten years now, GOG has contributed
with our Hobby Horse romp and the Padstowe May Morning song. Yes, it's
early and on a weekday. The best and most sacred things sometimes take
a little effort. 11 Druids attended the overnight vigil; we watched a
1950s video of May morning in Padstowe England, and also a video of English
street traditions; we made boutonnieres to wear May morning. 15 Druids
arrived in the dark at the battlegrounds to assemble for the Hobby Horse
ritual and Padstow's song. It was a wonderful morning.
