When I was very young we actually made May Baskets with little bouquets of flowers & hung them on our neighbors front door knobs. I can remember sunny days & colorful May Poles. But even then I think these May Day traditions were a novelty, something old fashion to recreate. In Paris they used to sell little bouquets of Lilly of the Valley on the street corners, & it was called Le Fête de Muguet. I am not sure if they still do that or not.
Not much really happens on the first of May anymore, these days. Today in Boston it is a rainy May first, but I was able to go out & pick a few pansies to creat a little May Basket to share with you. I hope you are all enjoying a very
Happy May Day!
