May Day Adventures
The above picture taken from Poland Our Poland blog shows how May Day is celebrated in Poland and in many other countries.
In the United States, however, it is very different. I remember as a child fixing May Day baskets for friends and then trying to sneak to their homes and deliver them without being caught. I was remembering this with nostalgia a few years ago, and came home to find a May Basket in my door.
The nearby Catholic school makes May Baskets for neighbors. Mine came with notepads, a highlighter, a packet of zinna seeds, coupons, and candy. The note on the front thanks us for being good neighbors to the school.
