Happy May Day!
Whenever the calendar turns from April to May, I'm reminded of being a kid and making (and distributing) May baskets. I remember making little baskets out of cupcake papers and using pipe cleaners as handles and then filling them with candy, dropping them off at friends' houses, ringing the doorbell and running away before we could get kissed.
Please tell me that's not just a North Dakota tradition!
Do kids still make May baskets? Do you remember any stories about May baskets from your childhood?
It turns out May Day is not the only holiday celebrated on May 1. A quick visit to InfoPlease and we find out that it's a celebration of Spring. It's a day of political protests. It's a neopagan festival, a saint's feast day, and a day for organized labor. In many countries, it is a national holiday.
What are you doing to celebrate this May Day?
