Welcome to the Bluestone Blog. Here we give you a little insight into who we are, what’s new with us, what it’s like to work at a holiday village, what’s happening on the resort, what we’re loving at the moment and much, much more. We’re open all year round, whatever the weather, so there’s always something fun and exciting going on at Bluestone – and we’re sure to be behind the scenes blogging about it!
It’s time for our resident historian and storyteller Terry John to step up the blog plate once again. Today, he looks at the historic customs and traditions associated with this time of the year, and even rustles up a recipe.
St John’s Eve falls on 24 June and, as our ancestors were well aware, St John’s Eve is one of the three spirit nights of the year, known in Wales as y tair ysbrydnos, when spirits roamed abroad in the hours of darkness. The other nights were May Day Eve and Halloween.
May is the month when, in gardens and hedgerows, the rebirth of plant life is well under way. Any guest at Bluestone who walks the Nature Trail will see the sharp green leaves of the bluebell spiking the undergrowth, though the flower may not appear for a few more weeks.
