May Day: Jasper County Founder’s Day?
May Day is a complicated holiday, to say the least. It originally started as a pagan holiday to celebrate the end of spring and beginning of summer. Then, as Christianity spread across Europe, it became a celebration of the Virgin Mary, in which people would place a floral crown on the heads of replicas.
When that fell out of favor with people, the tradition of a “Maypole” and Maypole dance became popular amongst some people while others preferred the delivering of “May Baskets.” However, as people began to migrate across the globe, May Day began to have no universal meaning.
In the United States, May Day celebrations vary by region. Jasper County is no exception, but most citizens of this county aren’t celebrating something that they should be exuberant about: the founding of the county.
