Monthly Greeting May 2024

They say April showers bring May flowers, and with the generous rainfall we’ve experienced this year, it’s no wonder we’ll be greeted with an abundance of blooms. But beyond the blossoms, the month of May heralds a tapestry of festivities and moments worth celebrating.

From the vibrant festivities of Cinco de Mayo on May 5th to the heartfelt appreciation of Mother’s Day on May 12th, and culminating in the solemn remembrance of Memorial Day on May 27th, this month is filled with familiar occasions that touch our hearts and unite communities.

Yet, amidst these well-known holidays, May unveils hidden gems, like National Cherry Cobbler Day on May 17th and the whimsical charm of Lucky Penny Day on May 23rd. 

It’s these delightful discoveries that infuse May with its unique charm and remind us to cherish every moment, big or small.

Moreover, May symbolizes new beginnings, fresh perspectives, and the revitalization of our spirits and minds. As the world around us bursts into life, it inspires us to embrace change, explore new horizons, and welcome the beauty of transformation.

So, as we embark on this journey through the joyful expanse of May, let’s revel in the richness of its offerings and seize every opportunity to celebrate life’s wonders. Join me as we dive into the vibrant tapestry of May’s delights and bask in the warmth of its embrace.

May is derived from the Latin word “Maius,” pays homage to the Greek goddess Maia, who intertwines with the Roman deity of fertility, Bona Dea. It’s a month steeped in ancient lore, symbolic of growth, abundance, and the promise of new beginnings.

Astrologically, May is marked by two distinct zodiac signs—Taurus ♉️ and Gemini ♊️. Taurus, reigning from April 20 to May 20, and embodies traits of steadfastness, reliability, and practicality, albeit with a touch of stubbornness. On the other hand, Gemini, spanning from May 21 to June 20, exudes adaptability, intellect, sociability, and occasional spontaneity.

Emerald, the birthstone of May, symbolizes love and achievement, while the Lily of the Valley and Crataegus monogyna serve as its birth flowers, representing purity and renewal across the Northern Hemisphere.

Beyond its astrological and symbolic significance, May brims with a myriad of special days and observances that enrich our lives. While Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day stand as pillars of celebration, let’s not overlook the everyday heroes honored throughout the month:

  • National Nurses Day (May 6)
  • National Teacher Day (May 7)
  • Receptionists Day (May 8)

  • International No Diet Day (May 6) – International No Diet Day is an annual celebration dedicated to the importance of body acceptance, diversity, and respect for all body shapes and sizes. 
  • National Twilight Zone Day (May 11)

May also extends its embrace to our beloved fur babies with:

  • Mayday for Mutts (First Sunday of May) may 5
  • National Rescue Dog Day (May 20)
  • National Pet Week (May 5-11)

Oh and I think its worth mentioning that may 18th is my sisters birthday and even though its not an official national holiday it is to our family

happy birthday sis I love you very much
