A player smelling a Lily of the valley

The Start of May was the first spring holiday event in RuneScape. During the event, lilies blossomed throughout the game. It first occurred in 2009, and it celebrated the beginning of May.

Background[edit | edit source]

During Start of May, there were Lilies of the valley blossoming throughout RuneScape.[1] The lilies could be given to other players by using the item on them if they had Accept Aid on and their inventory was not full, and could be wielded as a weapon. Smelling the lilies enabled players to perform an emote where the lilies are brought up to their nose and they lean backwards.

Start of May was first released on 28 April until 6 May of 2009 as a celebration of the start of May.[1][2] Following the event, the lilies were removed from the game, and appeared again in 2010 from 28 April to 13 May.[3] In addition, they appeared in 2011, starting on 3 May. They also appeared in 2012 on 1 May, 2 May and 3 May. The lilies appeared again from 2 May until 13 May 2013 and again in 2015 and 2016.
