May Day is one of my favorite days. Traditional celebrations aside, May 1st just seems like a good day to celebrate-the arrival of spring, the first blooming flowers, or just longer days outside. May baskets for May Day are a sweet little tradition, and I am surprised at how many people are unaware of it. My mother and I always made May baskets for me to take to school or hang on neighbors' doors. Usually, they were filled with May flowers and Dutchman's Breeches that I picked in the woods, but sometimes we also included candy. I have continued this tradition, and people are always happy and surpised to find one adorning their front door.
