May Day

May Day was always a time for flowers. We would gather flowers, ribbons, and candy and make May Baskets to give to friends and family. There was an old tradition to leave a May Basket on someone's doorstep, run away, and if caught exchange a kiss. Nowadays many people have forgotten about the May Baskets. If you would like to make one for your sweetie, check out the following website: Happy May Day!

Hi Fly-Cat,
My mom, sister and I used to celebrate May by making tiny bouquets from our garden and giving them to neighbors.
That is a great tradition to bring back.
