Happy May Day

Growing up, May Day was a fun little sneaky kind of day. My friends and I would make little goodie bags filled with candy and tied with pretty bows. Sometimes we’d even pick flowers to include in the gift. We’d then go around the neighborhood knockin on doors and then running to hide while theΒ  recipients found a sweet treat at their doorstep.

I never knew (nor cared) why we participated in such aΒ  sweet lil’ game… it was just something fun to do.

According to an array of resources online, May Day has a variety of purposes, origins and traditions. From political to seasonal to religious, May 1st seems to be important to a huge number of peoples around the globe.

I personally like my version best…

Surprise someone with a treat just because you can; besides, it not only makes someone else smile, you’ll probably giggle a bit too.

  1. What a cute bunch of sweets! (or a sweet bunch of cutes. hehe)
    Nice blog entry, I never really knew anything about May Day, I can’t find anything about it in my memories… just the term “May Pole” which is the stick in the ground with ribbons attached to the top and people dance around it or something… I haven’t seen many of them, the only one I can think of off hand was in the video for “The Safety Dance”. heh
