Thread Name: Folklore: May baskets
Subject: RE: Folklore: May baskets
Yes, I remember making May baskets to deliver to an elderly woman on our street on May Day. (Ring the bell then run and hide.) I was probably 5, 6, 7 years old. This was in Ohio in the early 1950's. I don't know whether the tradition came from my parents, or whether it was local to the neighborhood.
