I know this is the fifth of may, but i just woke from the may 1 celebrations biggrin.gif I live in the capital of my country, so I went over to the park where people have been celebrating this day for nearly 100 years! I guess that when this tradition started, it was more about speeches, but nowadays, its really just about drinking, being togehter with your friends drinking, listen to good music and drink, so how do you guys celebrate this day smile.gif?

I'm of a left wing/socialist persuasion (sorry for the politics guys smile.gif and always celebrated May Day but over where I live May 1 tends to be subsumed under May 2nd for this reason here.

Great weekend here btw smile.gif and hope everyone had a great time where ever you are and what ever you support/believe:)

Cheers,
Tony

ps yes I'm exhausted but very happy and had a great time tongue.gif

I only got a couple of hours to spend on may 1st(that's another story), but it was great, no clouds at all, so warm and company was beautiful wub.gif , I was with this gal and we went swimming( water was still pretty damn cold, but so refreshing) then we just laid in the sun getting a little tan and I smoked my first Cuban cigar, which lasted like 70 minutes and cost 30€ blink.gif which is like 46 dollars!

I am living in Aalborg. There is also a Tivoli here. I still got to know Kobenhavn.

I was at home writing the student instructor lesson, for competition, but when I came to rehearse with some friends I saw there was lots of people around.

Won´t miss it next year. smile.gif
