May Day

I appreciate my Mom teaching us and "enforcing" our many family traditions. One of those traditions us is giving flowers in May Day.

Steve rarely gets onboard with these traditions, but this year he got me this bouquet! I love it!

The last 8 years or so I have bought a bouquet of flowers and we split it up into mini-bouquets for neighbors or teachers  These are the ones I dropped off at the homes of the ladies I minister to...a day early actually because I knew I'd be busy on Saturday. This is definitely a fading tradition, but it lives on in our family.

What traditions do you have in your family that are rare in this day and age?

  1. I love that idea of giving flowers on May Day! I will have to add that to my celebration. We did do a maypole with my sister’s family! It was super fun (she and I had done it in elementary school days) and thankfully I did not get beaned in the head when our maypole fell over right by me midway through the dance. We giggled that it would have been “Mayday!” then! Lol
