La Fete Du Muguet - Happy May Day!

Today is La Fete du Muguet or May Day in France

It is the day that we wish our friends and family much happiness by presenting them with bouquets of Lily of the Valley!

So Sweet!!

Today is also a French National Holiday - Labor Day.

Wishing everyone much happiness 
on this wonderful day!!

  1. How very nice, Jennifer! Thank you!

    My earliest May Day memories are of being driven around my neighborhood by my mother (and/or father?) and leaving little handmade basket-pockets of flowers on the front door knobs of my best friends... I bet no one does that any more!!!!!


    1. Such a fun memory!! My aunt in NY also remembers delivering handmade baskets too. It's sad that this tradition has gone by the wayside in the States - Such a sweet gesture! What I loved about today in France is that the little bouquets are 1-3 euros each & so easy to purchase at every street corner! I love the smell of the Muguets! Thanks for comment - Come back and visit anytime!
