Wikipedia┬ásays: “The best known modern May Day traditions, observed both in Europe and North America, include dancing around the maypole and crowning the Queen of May. Fading in popularity since the late 20th century is the tradition of giving of ‘May baskets,’ small baskets of sweets or flowers, usually left anonymously on neighbours’ doorsteps.”
