This is a Wikipedia definition:
May Day was also celebrated by some early European settlers of the American continent. In some parts of the United States, May Day baskets are made. These baskets are small and usually filled with flowers or treats are left at someone's doorstep. When you ring the bell, you are supposed to run away.
Modern May Day ceremonies in the U.S. vary greatly from region to region and many unite both the holiday's "Green Root" (pagan) and "Red Root" (labor) traditions Among the largest is the May Day Parade and Pageant created by In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre, an event that has happened every year since 1974 in Minneapolis and now attracts some 35,000 people.
Have a great May Day on May 1st and please don't forget to come into the library next week. I can't believe next week is May. Then comes June and you all know what happens then - THE SUMMER READING PROGRAM!!!! Hooray! That's my favorite time of year.
Joke of the day:
