May Day traditions in France –

Fête du MuguetPour fêter le 1er Mai

La fête du 1er Mai –  Le muguet, fleur du bonheur.

Tradition has it that the Lilly of the Valley came into being from Eve’s tears when she was forced to leave the Garden of Eden.

During the week leading up to May Day, bunches of this fragrant spring flower are available everywhere – from florist, to market, to street corner…  Give it to your loved ones to  bring them good luck for the rest of the year.
