IT'S MAY DAY
And a Happy May Day to you!
May 1st is traditionally known as May Day, a time of celebrating spring. It is observed in different fashion in other countries. In the U. S. May Day celebrations have about ceased to exist.
I love the idea of welcoming spring with baskets of flowers. I was first introduced to the tradition when we lived at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Somehow, over the years, like everyone else, I have neglected putting my basket of flowers on my door.
One year recently I purchased a paper umbrella (ordered it online) and filled it with artificial flowers. It spent the spring and summer on my front door. And, I haven't done it since. Right now, at my new apartment, there is nothing on my door. I must remedy that.
