It’s May 22nd and that means I’m over three weeks late in getting up a promised post about May Day in Hastings. They celebrate the coming of summer like no other place – with Jack in the Green, a three day pagan festival with dancing, drumming, and a parade to march the Jack to the top of a hill where it is slain to release the spirit of summer.
So far I’ve probably spent about six hours on editing photos, and I’m maybe halfway through. Fingers crossed for maybe next week, but in the meantime I’ve managed to put together another Otherwise Chronicles video as a teaser for a more developed post.
To see the rest of the Otherwise Chronicles videos so far, check out the links below.
