May Day madness

Jack in the Green awakening ceremony  May 1st 2008

That’d be me then: up at 5am to watch the Jack-in-the-Green Awakening Ceremony. The start of the Rochester Sweep’s festival of traditional Country (Morris) dancing this weekend.

It was cold for May.

    One of my friend’s went to the May Day Run to Hastings and he told me (in Hastings) that there were these folky type people dressed in green. I am not sure what on earth that was about. Have you any idea what my friend was rabbitting on about? I thought we had aliens in Sussex or something?

    Come to think of it it must be the Jack in the Green thing too.

    They certainly get around.
