Growing up we always made May Baskets. Ours normally consisted of a paper cup, construction paper handle and were filled with popcorn and Brach's Pick-A-Mix candy. The tradition was that on May 1st you would leave said baskets on the doorsteps of friends and ring the doorbell. Then run as fast as you can back to the car where your parent was waiting. If the recipient catches you before you get to the car, they have to kiss you. We did this in Newton, Iowa throughout my childhood. I have lived several places since then and get crazy stares when I talk about this tradition. Has anyone else ever given May Baskets?
