Let’s get ready for May Day.
It’s an everyone holiday.
It’s a public holiday, for workers. It’s said to be a celebration of labor all over the world (England, China, Soviet Union).
My favorite part of May Day is the May Day basket.
It’s an old fashioned tradition, hanging an anonymous basket on your neighbor’s door.
More than that, it’s utterly charming.
(And a great way to use extra Easter baskets.)
So here’s the idea, early morning on May 1, we’re going to give five neighbors a secret surprise.
Five. Five neighbors.
We’re going to make and fill the baskets this week.
We’re going to take it 15 minutes at a time.
And on Sunday, we’re going to surprise some people.
