I love the May Day tradition of leaving little baskets of flowers for friends and family. When I was in kindergarten, I remember making paper cones and filling them with flowers. I would attach ribbon to the cones, and leave them hanging from doorknobs on May 1st.
Gone are the May Day picnics, parades, maypole dances, and all of the other wonderful traditions surrounding this day. I wonder why this holiday fell out of favor? It is perhaps the loveliest way to celebrate Spring.
