We were surprised with a May Day basket!A may Basket for me and  Gene

What a great basket these two delivered!

Anna and Mason  May Day

We gave them their baskets.

Chance helped deliver to these three.

Can you see a theme?  May Baskets = Smiles!

May Day Delivery

Some girls were not at home.  So we hung their baskets high on the light fixture so the dog would not eat the candy.

I still have to deliver Teddy’s May Basket.  I didn’t get it to a drop off point today.   It is his first May Day!

I hope where ever you live..you got a bit of a May Day surprise.  What a fun day! :)

  8. This charming tradition seems to be coming back. I remember when my scout troop stopped doing it. Something about communists having May 1 as their day. Which I totally didn't understand. Then or now.

  12. Such happy faces! And I see Chance got in on the action. Glad you didn't end up delivering those baskets in the snow, like those poor folks in Colorado would have had to do! It's springtime, for crying out loud!

  14. I love that you uphold these traditions. Our May Day surprise amounted to about 8" of white stuff. But... it is almost gone today.

  16. Baskets of candy and smiles just have to go together--LOL! I love the picture of the May baskets hidden in the bag hanging high on the light fixture. A clever way to keep the critters out! ;)
