雖然春天的陰晴不定讓人煩躁,但萬物復甦的春天標誌了新生命的降臨,給人充滿希望的期待感,世界各地出現盛大的儀式或慶典迎接嶄新階段,例如之前介紹過的印度色彩節,居民們用熊熊大火和七彩的粉末揭開春天序幕,讓這項慶典成為全球必看的活動之一!

每年5月8號,英格蘭的赫爾斯頓(Helston)小鎮就會舉辦有百年歷史的「花神祭」(Floral Day)歡慶春天到來,約莫80對的男男女女會手牽手在鎮上優雅跳起「五月花舞」(Furry Dance),他們還會跳進一些店家,來替老闆去霉運、迎好運!

慶典的焦點,就屬正午開始的上流之舞,小鎮上的名流人士會穿上高檔的燕尾服並戴上高禮帽,再邀請穿著美麗華服的女士們翩然起舞。
