What is May Day?

For me, it is the chance to leave goodies on my friend’s doorstep. I love sharing an unexpected surprise to brighten their day!

There is a bit of history of May Day. It is an ancient celebration of spring and new beginnings. People in many European cultures celebrate on the first day of May with dances, singing, and cake.

One of the most well-known modern May Day traditions is dancing around the maypole. Another tradition is crowning the Queen of May. People also give “May baskets,” which are small baskets filled with sweets and flowers, to their neighbors as a gift.
