GARLAND DAY, ON MAY 13TH, IS A HOLIDAY THAT TODAY IS ONLY CELEBRATED IN VERY FEW SMALL ENGLISH VILLAGES. IT IS RELATED TO THE GODDESS, DAMARA, A FERTILITY GODDESS WHO WAS WORSHIPPED IN BRITAIN. SHE IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE MONTH OF MAY. HER NAME MEANS "GENTLE", AND DAMARA IS CONSIDERED A SWEET AND RATHER DOCILE GODDESS WHO RULES OVER YOUTH AND INNOCENCE. SHE HELPS BRING PEACE AND HARMONY TO FAMILIES WITHIN QUARRELSOME HOUSEHOLDS. SHE WAS ALSO DEEMED THE PROTECTRESS OF YOUNG CHILDREN AND ENTRUSTED WITH KEEPING THEIR SENSE OF WONDER AND FAITH TOWARD THE WORLD AROUND THEM.

IT IS NO WONDER THAT GARLAND DAY IS A DAY FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE VILLAGE. IT IS A DAY THAT THEY USHER IN THE ARRIVAL OF SPRING BY WEAVING FLOWERS, GARLANDS, AND DEPOSITING THEM AROUND THE VILLAGE...SOMETIMES LEAVING THEM ON THE DOORSTEPS OF STRANGERS OR HANGING THEM FROM POLES. BY DOING THIS, THE VILLAGERS BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL RECEIVE THE BLESSINGS OF DAMARA AND WILL BE ENSURED A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST THE UPCOMING YEAR.
