May = Mother Mary

This month is a special month for the Virgin Mary! Traditionally, May 1st was May Pole Day and everyone would dance around a pole decorated with streamers and flowers (kind of a weird tradition). It was also a day to crown Mary with flowers, so people would create a crown of fresh flowers and put it on the statue of Mary at church (I love this idea! I wish people still did it. The Catholic church has changed this day to be a celebration of St. Joseph, in honor of all workers = blah.)

Here are some other terms for Mother Mary:

Star of theΒ Sea
Portal of the Sky
Our most loving Mother
Gate of Heaven
Purest of Lilies
Brilliant Rose
Queen of Heaven and Earth
Queen of Stars
Our Lady
Holy Queen
Our Mother
