Have you ever heard of May Day? I knew very little about it until I did some research, and I found that people make May Day baskets and fill them with sweet treats and fresh flowers for spring. You can make your own May Day baskets and fill them with springy treat recipes from RecipeLion and more!
May Day is a celebration of fertility and the new life that emerges in springtime. Young ladies often danced around a tall maypole with streaming ribbons while musicians played a festive tune. Nowadays, many Americans celebrate with special May Day baskets. These baskets are left on the doorstep of someone special, and they are brimming with fresh dessert recipes and happy treats to spread the joy of spring.
