The month of May brings many occasions to celebrate with open houses and/or brunches or other parties or festivities. May 1, many children will take May Baskets door to door to share with their little friends. Or do they even still do that? Am I out of the loop? I remember WAY BACK when I was in school we would work on homemade May baskets the whole week before unless we were procrastinators – then we buckled down the night before and got them made and filled. Because I lived in the country, my mother would have to take us around to different places to let us deliver the May baskets on May Day after we got home from school. And of course living in a small town area, we didn’t have a huge number to make or deliver – just to our classmates, which wasn’t a lot. Right after May Day comes Cinco de Mayo, which is celebrated by many but I have never actually celebrated that so I can’t say much about that. Of course Mother’s Day has always been an important day for all of us.
