happy May Day!

I remember May Day as a child.  We would make baskets out of paper, or cans, or decorated school milk cartons.  As I was a child of the midwest, I believe we had flowers in bloom to cut from our gardens (sadly nothing is in bloom on our property right now - I will need to be creative...).  My parents never helped us - this is something we did as kids, alone.  We would then go to the doors of our neighbors, hang our baskets, ring the bell, and run.  I remember it being so much fun.  

I guess, if I want to do it today, I will need to bring a child along, to make it appear that it was his idea...  Sometimes it is just so much more fun being a kid!

Happy May Day my friends~  I wish I could hang a basket on each of your doors!

I remember being liking the idea of May Day as a child even though we never celebrated it. Maybe I'll have to start. :)
