May Day is right around the corner for us and I have some FREE May Day printables to help you celebrate this holiday.
I have memories as a young kid of me and my mom getting a crate full of flowers. Then my Mom telling me that we are going to deliver flowers to some of the elderly people she knew. I can remember running up to the doorstep of the recipients and then running away as fast as my little feet could carry me in hopes they wouldn’t catch me. What sweet memories these are to me. 🙂I love what Wikipedia says about this holiday: “In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone’s doorstep. The giver rings the bell and runs away. The person receiving the basket tries to catch the fleeing giver. If they catch the person, a kiss is exchanged.”
Now, I don’t want any kisses but I would like to teach my kids how to make others happy, so this year we are starting up the May Day tradition of delivering flowers.
I think anyone would love to get some flowers on May Day. So make sure and take the time to do this. Let someone know you care. Doing good deeds can help cure all kinds of sadness and depression for both the person doing the good deed as well as the recipients.
Here is the Tag I created for my May day flower basket. I hope you feel inspired to start a tradition of your own this May Day… who knows, you might even get a kiss! 🙂
