Victorian May Day Baskets

http://oldfashionedliving.com/Victorian-May-Day-Baskets.html

May baskets evolved from an old tradition that involves gathering fresh flowers or placing small candies inside of a handmade basket. That basket is then hung on a neighbor’s door knob or left on the door step for its recipient to discover. The history of course, goes far deeper than that, but today we are talking baskets. One variation says that baskets were left on doorsteps, the door bell rang and the giver would run away. If the receiver could catch the giver, a kiss was to be exchanged.
