May 1 is the anniversary of the event that launched the Society
for Creative Anachronism (SCA), though no one knew it at the
time, as it was intended to be a one-off party. The SCA counts
its years from May 1, 1966.
The West Kingdom of the SCA holds a coronation on the weekend
closest to 1 May (Beltane Coronation was over last weekend).
Dorothy and I picked our wedding date as to not conflict with SCA
events, so our anniversary was May 8. Were she still alive, next
Monday would be our 52nd anniversary.
