Can you believe that for the past 14 years I’ve been wishing people a Happy May Day and really I have no idea what it’s all about? I think it has more significance in countries in Europe, but did find on Wikipedia that the U.S. used to celebrate it:
In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone’s doorstep. The giver rings the bell and runs away. The person receiving the basket tries to catch the fleeing giver. If they catch the person, a kiss is exchanged.
The idea of this happening in New York City makes me laugh. Given the attitudes here, I’m sure the “kiss” exchanged would more likely be a punch. It’s the thought that counts, right?
Yesterday was a really long travel day — we took off from San Francisco at 10:45 a.m. and finally got home after 8:00. Woo! Much better than taking the red eye though. San Francisco is such a cool and beautiful city, I’ll have a better recap up later this week (along with my official race recap from Big Sur!). In the meantime, a few pictures:
I must tell you that the one thing that we did when we were out in San Francisco is convert to the new Samsung Galaxy S4. I thought I would never see the day that I got rid of my iPhone! C convinced me, though, especially since so many of the features are so awesome. So far I love it!
