Last night we celebrated Valborg…
The 1st of May has always been a special day. When I was young we made Mayday baskets and left them at the door of our neighbor. The goal was to knock on the door, leave the basket and run home as fast as you could. If you got caught, you might get a kiss. The idea of leaving a little gift and sneaking away has stayed with me in adulthood and in Sweden.
In Sweden, the 30th of April is called Valborg. Townspeople gather around a fire, sing songs and say farewell to the cold. Beautiful tradition. Beautiful evening. This morning, 1st of May, I woke up and continued a childhood tradition. I packed a Mayday basket – 5 hours cleaning service – and left it at the door of my neighbor. I did not get-a-way. I got a kiss (an emoji).
