Ever since I can remember, my family has celebrated May Day to it's fullest. For those of you who aren't familiar with May Day, May Day was celebrated by some early European settlers of the American continent. In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made. These baskets are small and usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone's doorstep. The basket giver would ring the bell and run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the fleeing giver. If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.
When I was in Kansas, we would devise elaborate plans for getting the May Day baskets to our cousins without getting caught. Sadly, I have yet to find anyone in Indiana who celebrates this holiday. One of these days, I'll make it a tradition. Yes....I will.
