“Flora’s Hope” celebrates a very special Roman goddess.
Flora was not only the goddess of flowers and spring, but she was also the goddess of youth and her initiates really knew how to throw a great party.
Speaking of great parties . . .
Flora’s festival was traditionally held between April 28th and May 3rd and typically included drinking, flower costumes, plays, mimes, and ended in a hunt and feast!
This festival celebrated the renewal of life, which is something I hope we will all be celebrating soon!
