This Beautiful Month of May

Oh May is finally here! It is without any doubt my favorite month of the year, especially the 27th! 😛 I’m sure there is no need to say why!

Some information about May:

Gemstone: Emerald 
Flower: Lilly of the Valley

“May is named after the Greek goddess, Maia. The month is a time of great celebrations in the northern hemisphere. It is the time when flowers emerge and crops begin to sprout.”

“First thing in the morning on May 1st, young girls used to rush out into the garden to wash their faces in the May dew. There is an old tale that says that May dew has magic properties and that anyone who has washed their face in it will have a beautiful complexion all through the year. This dew was supposed to be able to remove freckles and also spots and pimples.”  {Ain’t that cute? 😛 May Dews are magical}

On this, I wish you all a very happy month of May! ^-^
