And it said that that was the day that she threw him into the sea not the day he was born, unless there was a bit before of after saying that "he was born on the same day."
When was he found by Elffin? First of May?
As a historical date, it has no great significance (refer to Katy's post
) but we might call it mythologically significant. The reenactment (symbolic of course) could be meaningful to anyone that does it, especially if included with the May Day/Beltane celebrations a couple of days later.
Hmm, perhaps I'll indulge in something. "Throwing away" something valuable "to the mercy of God" for it to "arrive" somewhere else in two days. Sounds like a nice little ceremony...
