Today is May Day

Today is May Day....while not really an offical holiday, it was one I looked forward to as a kid because we did spring things this day.

One of my favorite things to do, was create "May Baskets" out of old strawberry containers or weave paper. Then we would pick some May Flowers (Hepatica) and bake some cookies to fill our baskets, and sneak over to our neighbor's door, leave the basket, ring the doorbell, and run. It was always fun, except for the time I got nipped by a dog while "escaping" over the fence! ha ha

Here is another list of May holidays that might be fun to celebrate something special....or at least help you come up with a meal idea for that night if you're in a pinch. :)

May is:
  • National Salad Month
  • National Barbecue Month
  • National Bike Month
  • National Hamburger Month
  • National Photograph Month
