Remember May Day?

Happy May Day! What do you recall about May Day from your childhood? Anything special? We used to gather wildflowers (often dandelions as I recall) to leave anonymously on neighborhood door handles. If we were feeling pretty lucky, we added some penny candy. I personally have never done a maypole celebration but saw one recently and was reminded of the celebration of May’s arrival. I don’t think these things happen much anymore. I am pretty sure they are only vague memories for my own children. I miss it!

Here’s some virtual May Day flowers and a maypole for you. Happy May Day! Now I am humming the song from Camelot…..you know which one…..
