Happy May Day!

Happy May Day!  May Baskets, a sweet old tradition unfortunately not as popular today. I can remember taking May baskets around to my friends and leaving them on the doorstep. It was a lot of fun and then you would come back home and see who all left you one!  Oh, for the good ole days!

Sweet Spring Blessings,

  1. We used to do this, too. When I was a HeadStart teacher, we helped the kids make May baskets. We went for a walk and gathered violets and dandelions. My own kids did this when they were little. Sad to see such a sweet tradition go by the wayside.

  3. I can remember doing this also! We would knock on people's doors and then run away after placing the May basket on the porch or door. Memories!!
