And here is the first big reveals: Grandpa Steve Starchild's appearance and he was Hawaiian. There are also two reasons I chose May Day for the gang. First, it was a chance to shed some light on the late Steve. Also, in the military "may day" is something pilots and such say when they're about to crash.

Yup. Happy ones. What do you think of Steve?

He must have been an amazing grandpa.

6th Jan 2023, 7:17 AM

He was~

I'm Finnish and I thought this was Finnish may day :DDD

I had no idea there was a completely different, Hawaiian one!

I didn't know that day existed at all. I took a random look and came across it. How is your May Day celebrated?

Here's an article about it;

Iit's known as Vappu here, but gets translate as "may day" often. It's honestly a very chaotic, almost riot-like celebration with balloons, graduation caps and alcohol <,<

Oh! I was expecting the English "May Day" with the maypole and bunting and stuff, but I love that it's a Hawaiian holiday instead!

He looks like one cool do and is that star on his hand reminds me of the jostar star from Jojo

Thanks and the star is there for the same reason there's a star on Stella's face. He's a Star Mutant.

There's also an Irish May Day! This is awesome.

7th Jan 2023, 8:46 AM

So May Day is celebrated in multiple places! I didn't know that.

7th Jan 2023, 8:50 AM

I'm quite certain their cake will be covered in flowers. :)

9th Jan 2023, 10:58 AM

Well, there's no hiding that. Can't have something Hawaiian May Day inspired and not have flowers.

May day corresponds to the cross-quarter day at the first day if summer (Solstice is *mid-summer*). Padstow, Cornwall still celebrates with a hobby horse mummers' play and a song beginning:

Unite and unite and let us all unite
For summer is a-comin today
And whither we are going we all will unite
On the merry morning of May

There's also a very old Irish song, "Samhra Samhra" or "Thugamar féin an Samhra linn" which identifies May day with the first day of summer.
'Oss! 'Os!
Wee 'oss!
