Whan I was 6 years old May Day was observed in my town. Children would make a little May Basket out of woven strips of colored paper, similar to an Easter basket, and put some token gift article on it. The boys would leave a May Basket on the door step of their favorite girl, ring the bell, and try to run to the safety of home and mommy, before the girl runs out and catches him and kisses him (yukk). I had to take one to Mary Winkler's house, because they went to our church, and lived on my block, and my mother approved of her. (yukk). The baskets were pretty austere, the second world war was going on, and colored construction paper could probably be used somehow to win the war, and was not to be squandered lightly. (Yes, in those days, girls had names like Mary.)

Did it involve a toll-free telephone number and the phrase "But wait, there's more if you call in the next 10 minutes!" ?
