When I was a girl, sometimes people left baskets of flowers on doorsteps to celebrate May Day. I’ve done that from time to time. It’s just fun to leave flowers mysteriously for someone isn’t it? It brightens up their day, for sure.
Have you ever participated in or seen a May Pole dance? It’s loads of fun to dance around the Maypole, but once I saw a group of barefoot ballerinas dancing in the grass around a beautifully decorated Maypole. I’ll never forget it.
One of my favorite ways to celebrate May Day is by making and drinking may wine.

(One of my favorites.) Here’s my favorite recipe for making may wine.
