May Day

We used to make our own May Baskets, pick flowers from our yard, put a few pieces of candy in them and hang them on a friend or neighbor's doorknob then ring the doorbell and run. Hallmark Vintage May Day Baskets

Realism par excellence!

May Day Flower Cone...- my grams J. And I always made may day baskets. We would hang them on her door, pound on the door and hide behind the propane tank until my gramps came to the door!!! GREATEST childhood memory!

May Day.....


The Easter Bunny is not a bunny or rabbit at all, but is actually a hare, the sacred animal of Eostre (or Oestra/Ostara), the ancient Teutonic Goddess of the Spring Moon. At the vernal equinox (March or April) the hares go ‘mad’ and at this time of year, one of Eostre’s hares laid an egg, the Egg of New Life, or the "Easter" Egg.

A GREAT May Basket idea. May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone's doorstep. The giver would ring the bell and run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the fleeing giver.
