Happy May Day from Hastings!

Here in Hastings, May Day is celebrated like nowhere else. To welcome in summer, they have a festival called Jack in the Green.

Everyone is dressed in green with ribbons and flowers in their hair, and every store in the Old Town is decorated with boughs of real branches and long ribbons. There’s dancing, drumming, parading – but for now I’m going to leave you with that teaser!
