How time flies so fast. In few days we will be welcoming another month. The month of May will end in few days. But before we welcome the month of June I am sure some of us if not everybody is excited for the Flores de Mayo precession.
Flores de Mayo (“Flowers of May”) is a Catholic and Aglipayan festival held in the Philippines in the month of May. Lasting for a month, it is held in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Santacruzan refers to the pageant on the last day of Flores de Mayo, held in honour of Helena (known as Reyna Elena) and Constantine finding the True Cross in Jerusalem. Its highlight is usually the Santa Cruzan which is a parade ofsagalas (or muses) held on the last day of May.
I haven’t experience to be a sagala in a Santa Cruzan procession that is why I am excited for the little one. He will act as Constantine, the son of Helena. I am a certified supportive mother and I want him to experience the things I didn’t experience when I was a kid. And, well, I know mother’s out there will surely agree on what I say. Right?
