|May Flower:||Lily of the Valley/May Lily|
- May was named after Maia, a Roman goddess of the earth & of plant growth, symbolizing a month associated with a surge in plant activity.
- Lily of the Valley Flowers are sweet & hopeful.
- May is also from the Latin word maiores, “elders,” who were celebrated during this month.
- Maia was considered a nurturer, which may explain the connection with this springtime month.
|Birth Stone:||Emerald (Green)|
For the ones born in May, it’s easy being green. The color represents springtime and rebirth, as shown in May’s birthstone, the emerald. Emeralds are also associated with foresight, good fortune and youth, according to the American Gem Society.
|Astrology Signs:||Taurus & Gemini|
- Taureans, those born between May 1 and 20, are said to be smart, ambitious and trustworthy.
- May babies born after May 21 are Geminis, who are said to be more passionate and dynamic.
- People who are born in the first half of May are less likely to marry others who are born in the same period.
- Taurus is said to be most compatible with Pisces and Capricorn, and a Gemini is a good match for an Aquarius.
|Other May Fun Facts:|
- According to Time, babies born in spring score high on the hyperthymia scale, meaning they have a general sense of optimism about them. This means those born in May tend to “see every down as a prelude to an up, every market crash as a run-up to a boom.” But there’s a flip side, in that things can get rough if the silver lining doesn’t appear in the clouds. That same Time article also notes — using a study of 58,000 people — that May babies have the highest rates of clinical depression.
- May babies are generally pretty healthy. Research from the University of Columbia shows that people born in May have the lowest disease risk — another reason to be optimistic.
- Studies show that babies born in spring and summer are night owls compared to their summer counterparts, so be prepared for some late evenings.
|Things to Celebrate in May:|
- A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.
- The official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis. Following her mother’s 1905 death, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.
- Mother’s Day is the day to honor all moms and celebrate motherhood. It’s about honoring the mother of your family, the influential mother-like figures in our lives and recognizing the women for the strong and wonderful people that they are.
- A Mother’s love is unconditional. For a mother, a child always remains her baby even if he turns 60 or becomes a tycoon, a leader or a thinker. Mothers hold this strong aspect of loving their children in any phase of life or situation. This unconditional love of mothers is what makes them so special for every child.
- Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is observed on the last Monday of May. From 1868 to 1970, it was observed on May 30.
- Originally, Memorial Day began as a way to honor those who died in the Civil War and now has become a day to honor all American veterans who gave their lives.
Cinco De Mayo:
- It isn’t about celebrating burrito’s & beer.
- Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo] in Mexico, Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is a yearly celebration held on May 5, which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza.
- The first Kentucky Derby was held on May 17, 1875.
- Kentucky Derby, noun, a race for three-year-old horses that’s run annually in Louisville.
- In 1872, Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr., the grandson of that Lewis Clark, went to the Epson Derby in England. When he got back to the States, he started a racing club called the Louisville Jockey Club and raised enough money to build a permanent racetrack in Louisville.
- It’s the longest running sporting event in the U.S.
- Roses first appeared at the Derby in 1896, when the winner Ben Brush was given a garland made of white and pink roses. In 1904, the red rose became the official flower of the Kentucky Derby. Years later, sports columnist Bill Corum accordingly nicknamed the race the “Run for the Roses,” which, of course, stuck.
