Last week, the country was buzzing with election excitement; Saturday 8th of May brought uncertainty to the political world as a deal was sought. However, for one day only we dropped all thoughts of the election and welcomed in the summer – it was Flora Day!
I am quite certain that it is only in Cornwall that we welcome in our elected MPs by parading them through the streets wearing a millstone around their necks. Andrew George held on to his majority on the 6th of May and took his place as St. Piran in the Hal-an-tow.
The Hal-an-Tow is an agglomeration of many myths and legends. It celebrates the end of winter and signifies the start of the summer – a perfect tradition!
