may morning

for over the past 500 years, oxford has celebrated may 1st, or may morning,

by gathering at the bottom of magdalen tower while a choir begins singing at 6am.

in the last few decades, it's gotten more rowdy with kids jumping off magdalen bridge into really shallow water. this morning, the police barricaded the area around magdalen bridge so that there wouldn't be too many people and that it would be safer.

this guy broke through the lines

listening to the choir sing

happy may!
