Do you remember traveling all over your neighborhood carrying a big box stuffed full of May baskets to leave in secret at the doorstops of your friends? May Day is one of my favorite childhood memories. It reminds me of sweet and gentler time. Growing up, my baskets were usually styrofoam, plastic or paper cups with colorful pipe cleaners attached on them as handles. I didn't only deliver the baskets in my neighborhood, but all over the small town where I grew up. Inside of the May baskets are delicious goodies, usually left over Easter candy, popped pop corn and a few violets or dandelions to make the "basket" look pretty. And, *gasp* all the candy was unwrapped!
Do your children celebrate May Day?
