MAY RAY DAY
Nature is a fantasy in itself. The seamless transition from showering to bringing up the warmth of the sun in the next few days is an experience that could only be felt and enjoyed upon. The rich smell of May and the mesmerizing new flowers after the April shower are a blessing of sorts. And, to celebrate this mercy of nature on mankind, there is May Ray Day to celebrate.
This special day was coined by Richard Ankli, the founder of You’re Welcomegiving Day also in 1977. He created the day in honor of his brother Ray who was born on 1 May. Over the years the day has been a symbol to celebrate the onset of summer and a mark of the end of winter. It shows that the new sowing season is here and there is something to be thankful for.
How to celebrate
The best way to celebrate the day remains to enjoy the sun and its beauty with high amounts of gratitude and no qualms. Ditch your daily routine and go out under the sun and admire its beauty. Go on a shopping spree to make your wardrobe summer and spring appropriate. Take your family to a picnic in the open and have good family time. Also, don’t forget to spread the word to everyone through your social media handles that today is a reminder for all of us to go outdoors. It is a day to celebrate the warmth of nature and do it your way.
