In my younger years, we always celebrated May Basket Day. It was a fun time with our parents, creating May baskets and delivering them to our neighbors on May 1st.

Historically speaking, in the 19th and 20th centuries, people rang in the first of May with a sweet tradition. They would take all the flowers that they had gathered at the end of April’s showers, arrange them in pretty paper along with some gifts and candies, and then hang them on the doors of friends and neighbors as a way of welcoming them into warmer weather.
