May is an AWESOME month!
A lot happens in May around the Tulsa and Broken Arrow areas.
May 1st is May Day (or Beltane, if you travel the wiccan or celtic circles of life). This is the time to celebrate spring time, good crops, births and new life in general….though with this year’s record history of snowfall in Oklahoma in MAY(!)…spring might be hard to see at the moment.
May 5th, Cinco de Mayo….I know a lot of us will be celebrating Saturday night instead of Sunday due to work and church but celebrations are good and they usually include a healthy dose of FUN!
May 4th & 5th also opens up the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival at the Castle of Muskogee for the 2013 season! YES! I knew that’s what you were waiting to hear, right? 😉 This year the fair (OKRF) runs through June 1 & 2….for a 5 week run! Each weekend is a different themed celebration at the Castle.May 4th & 5th is romance weekend. May 10th is student day. May 11th & 12th celebrates Mother’s Day. May 18th & 19th is Pirate weekend! arrgh! May 25th, 26th and 27th is Celtic weekend with a salute to our troops on Memorial Day (the 27th). June 1st & 2nd is Gypsy Bazaar!
We absolutely cannot forget Mother’s Day which falls on May 12th this year. Mothers deserve to be celebrated. Don’t forget to let your Mom know how important she is in your life this year.
Graduations from High School and Colleges all over the state also take place in mid-May….so
congratulate your friends and family members for their accomplishments and enjoy the summer with them too!
Memorial Day!! (May 27th, 2013) That day that begins the swim season for so many…Bring on SUMMER!!! and don’t forget to remember our troops, the men and women who have served over the years so we can enjoy our rights and freedoms in our own way and in our own time.
Thank a Veteran…Hug a Soldier…or just say a Prayer for those who are currently serving & away from families of their own.
