Random 1st May Ideas

Dearest sweethearts,

Here we are on the 1st of May - my... how time does fly! We're heading straight on to summer yet the weather lately was rather rainy and chilly - typical Polish weather for this season, one might say! I can't believe the Little LadyBug Baby Girl is over 8 months now, we managed to get home safe and sound and we have Granny (that's Ladybug's Grand-granny!) with us. We are truly counting our blessings :) Today there is the National Celebration of 1st of May - May Day or Labour Day - celebrated both here in Poland but also in Romania. In Poland the 1st of May is also connected to the bigger celebration called "Majowka" - which also includes the 2nd of May, National Polish Flag Day + the bank holiday of the 3rd of May, Constitution Day. By the way, #didyouknow that the Polish Constitution was the 1st one in Europe and the 2nd one in the World? (After the well known constitution of the United States of America). 
But that's not the only thing one might celebrate on the 1st of May. If you are a fan of comic books and action heroes, if you are a need that loves random dates... well then... you must know by now that the 1st of May is "Batman Day"! That's right, you heard me well, it's the day that commemorates the 1st of May 1939 when the well known crime fighther with a sad past made his debut in number 27 in the Detective Comics. So if you're not sure what to do today, how to celebrate this day, make sure you watch a Batman movie ;) and don't forget to put your cape on - everything is made better with a cape... if only people would wear it more often! ;))) 
And not to forget... the most important celebration of them all comes in just a few days - May the 4th be with You! That's the 4th of May being the international Star Wars Day! This year is a magical year, in the sense that there are 40 years since the first screening of Star Wars: A New Hope - that's Episode 4. That happened on the 25th of May 1977. Also on the 14th of May there is the birthday of George Lucas, so as you can see the Star Wars fans out there consider the month of May a general celebration month! But either if you are a Star Wars fan or a Batman fan or both... or not... I believe there are still many things you could celebrate in May! So if you live in Poland or Romania or any other country that has this day off, as bank holiday, get out and enjoy the time off. Breathe in the fresh air, smile and think of the positive things in your life. Make today count!

Yours very much sincerly,
The Twisted Red LadyBug That Loves Life And It's Celebrations
