May Day   Leave a comment

May Day starts early in Oxford, with 6 a.m. May Morning celebrations. People from all over Oxford (including a motley crew from Wolfson College) head down to Magdalen Bridge to hear the Magdalen College Choir greet the coming spring with a rendition of Hymnus Eucharisticus from the top of the college’s main tower. Afterwards, the revelers head into town to watch Morris dancing, find breakfast, and generally frolic before heading back home for a nap.
