Tuesday, May 1st: “Little Miss Muffet, sat on a tuffet, Eating her curds and whey” … that sure is catchier than a 1812 edition that read “Little Mary Ester sat upon a tester”. May 1st, besides being May Day, is also MOTHER GOOSE DAY. This is a day to appreciate nursery rhymes and stories, a favorite of children and their parents.
The Mother Goose Society was founded in 1987 to encourage a love for the warm tradition of Mother Goose rhymes and Mother Goose’s comforting embrace and to promote the annual celebration of Mother Goose Day. (There’s a Mother Goose Society? Why yes, apparently there IS!)
Celebrate life; celebrate the day with some nursery rhymes. Either do it old-school, like in the ‘good-old-days” and read from a book, or do it new-school and google ‘nursery rhymes’, or get some on your kindle or nook.
