Until I was researching details for A History Lover’s Guide to Lincoln, I never realized that celebrating May Day used to be an important spring celebration at the University of Nebraska.
What I remember …
A May Day Queen was chosen
There was school wide participation
Costumes and dress mattered
As for the specifics, they will be added later. Due to the current state of the world, I do not have easy access to research materials.
More details will be coming soon!
