So, how do you celebrate? Here are five ideas for you:
1. Why not leave your May Day basket for someone who will truly appreciate it? If that really is your neighbor, great. But what about a nursing home? The overworked nurses at a hospital? Use your imagination.
2. It's the end of winter! Get in touch with your ancient roots and build your own version of a bonfire. Invite that neighbor.
3. The American version of this festival? Go to a baseball game. What says summer better than baseball?
4. It's also International Worker's Day. In the US we recognize workers on Labor Day in September, but for other countries, May 1 is the day. To recognize this day, you could go back to #1 or you could do as these folks are doing, but I'd recommend showing appreciation instead.
