Celebrate May Day With A May Basket

Make a flower-filled basket for a friend. Make a sweet small basket you can fill with freshly picked flowers or use one you have around the house. It is traditional to secretly leave these little gifts on the door of a friend on May 1st.

The tradition of the ancient Roman and Druid holiday of May Day has endured for centuries. It has been a celebration of spring turning into the pleasures of summer. Traditionally, a "Maypole" was the focus of the festivals. Even today the Maypole is used in the replications of old-time festivals. The Maypole is a tall pole in which ribbons are woven around by groups of dancers to make unique designs and patterns. Visit the page on BasketMakers.com for more details.
