The first day of May – A time for kissing under the blossoming trees

Today is another special celebration for the Czech Republic.  It is the first of May and on this day the Czechs kiss under the blossoming trees.  It is supposed to make the woman strong  and healthy for the year.   Everywhere you look there are couples kissing under cherry and apple trees.  The roads around Orel are lined with cherry trees so it is a popular place to visit on this special day.  The day is beautiful, sunny and warm, a perfect day for a walk in the countryside.
