Thursday Thrill - May Day

Happy May Day to you all!! 
Technically, it was yesterday, but not to worry, May Day isn't going to mind if we continue the celebration a bit. 

Do any of you celebrate? When I was a little girl, we would decorate little May Day baskets and fill them with tiny candies and toys. Then we would sneak over to our neighbors houses and quietly leave them on their doorsteps for a special surprise. I loved it! This quirky tradition has died out in recent years and I'm quite sad. I love random holidays were you get surprise candy! Plus, it's a good excuse to get out in the early morning sunshine and start the day in a pleasant mood.
