Brings back memories of delivering may day baskets to the neighbors. This is a holiday that is long ago been forgotten but since it's my birthday I didn't forget it. How cute and could be done any time!
May Day is related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night. – it has traditionally been an occasion for celebration. As Europe became Christianized, the pagan holidays lost their religious character and either changed into popular secular celebrations, as with May Day, or were merged with or replaced by new Christian holidays. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day
