May in Saxons Calendar

May in Saxons Calendar

May was called "Trimilki," because then they began to milk the kine three times in the day. Shepherds are watching over the ewes and lambs. May-day was the great rural festival of the Anglo-Saxons, and was celebrated with great pomp and rejoicing. This festival will soon be numbered amongst the things that were.
