Celebrating May Day

As a child I can remember celebrating May Day and loving this sign that winter is finally vanquished and my summer fun was really starting.  We would decorate green produce baskets with colorful papers and fill them with treats and handmade flowers.  On the May Day morning we would set the baskets on our neighbors steps and give them to our teachers.  I can remember at least a couple of years where we actually decorated a May Pole.  

It seems that this fun little tradition is dying out; I sincerely hope not since it is such a wonderful celebration of life and nature.  I am hoping that it is just that I am not at an age to dance around a pole with ribbon anymore and others are still holding onto great tradition. 

Happy May Day Everyone!
