Happy May Day!

What is May Day you ask?

Well, as I celebrated it when I was younger it was like this..

…May Baskets are made. These baskets are small and usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone’s doorstep. When you ring the bell, you are supposed to run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the person running away. If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.

When you are little you don’t ask why when given a basket full of candy, you just dig in and enjoy!  Now that we are older you may want to know a little more about this holiday.  Read all about May Day at Wikipedia.
