"May Day Pockets" ~ The tradition of "bringing in the May" is celebrated by the gift of giving sweet blossoms gathered and leaving your anonymous gift dangling from a doorknob. I love the burlap bag and lace.
“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Tippaleipä (Finnish May Day Funnel Cakes).Light and lemony batter is deep fried and dusted with powdered sugar for a sweet May Day treat. In Finland it's enjoyed alongside Sima, a fermented lemon soda.
Growing up I have many happy memories of May Day celebrations in school.
