Once Upon a Time on May Day…
…we used to deliver May Day Baskets and receive them. My mom would buy paper Dixie cups and colored pipe cleaners for handles and we would fill the small baskets with popcorn and candy (a favorite was M&Ms) and then we’d deliver them to family and friends. You’d knock on the door and run away. They were left anonymously. That was so much fun. I don’t think anyone does that anymore. That’s a shame. A pretty basket – with flowers or candy – can brighten someone’s day and let them know they’re thought of. May Day was a couple days ago. I wish I would’ve delivered May Baskets. Maybe I will next year. I did find some pretty photos of baskets. Aren’t they beautiful? They’d brighten my day!!!
