    Cabbage, are you creating your own blog reader now? But it’s a good proof that the cause of labour day is not exactly on everybody’s mind, evidently not on mine:-( I remember that my grandfather used to wear a red carnation (he had one made of plastic) on May Day – and I have to confess that this is as far as my concern with May Day goes so far :-(((

    Hmmm, I’m not sure what creating my own blog reader entails. It’s true that many of the above links are all culled from blogs I regularly enjoy. 🙂

    I love the idea of wearing a red carnation on May Day. What an elegant tradition!

    May day is actually one of my favorite holidays. I like Bastille day quite a bit, too. At these moments, without being overly nostalgic, I think contemporary struggles merge with historical struggles to continue the fragile process of creating a world we need not be ashamed to share.

    A blog reader is software or webbased client which allows you to conveniently read all the messages from the blogs that you follow in one spot, e.g. on one website. I am using google reader at the moment, don’t think that it’s the best thing since sliced bread, but fairly useful. It come with a google or gmail account.

    Regarding the pink carnation: Me thought it was a widespread western tradition! But maybe it’s just a thing of the German socialists.

    I’ll ask about the carnation. Seems some of our traditions have fallen a bit by the wayside, sadly.

    Thanks for the reader link. I learn more tech things from you! 🙂
