The tradition of May Day begins with a basket or container brimming with flowers and small gifts. The May Day basket is quietly and secretly placed on the doorstep of a neighbor or loved one, demonstrating the gift of giving without receiving.
The basket giver would ring the bell and run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the fleeing giver. If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.
The moon shines bright, and the stars give light, A little before it is day; So God bless you all, both great and small, And send you a joyful May! –Lucy E. Broadwood and J. A. Fuller Maitland, English Country Songs
Sending you a Basket of warm wishes for a Bright and Beautiful MAY DAY!
