May Baskets

I remember May baskets, homemade paper baskets that we made in school and filled with spring flowers. We hung them on a neighbor's door, yelled "May basket," then ran with the hope that the youngsters inside would chase us and catch us and join up as we walked to the next neighbor to repeat the spring ritual. With neighbors more than a half mile apart, the evening was more walking than hanging baskets.
