May-day May-day!

Can fun and comfort co-exist?

Last weekend, Mike and I were umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether to go into Oxford at 5.00am to take part in the Oxford May Day celebrations. 

5 am? you say! 😱

Yes – 5 AM. On a Saturday.

Cue small violin.

On the 1st May, Oxford gathers around one of the towers and listens to a choir sing in Spring from the roof tops. Morris dancers parade through the street with bells on and accordions billowing. Most of the crowd have stayed up all night, and the pubs and cafes stay open too. 

Sounds so romantic, right? So magical and fun….
