Hang baskets of fresh flowers on the doorknobs of your neighbors' houses. Baskets of flowers were often given out in older May Day celebrations and could also include a small gift.[2] However, this must be done without being seen––if caught, your neighbor can apparently claim a kiss!

Beltane is one of the Pagan holidays. It's celebrated on May first in fact many May Day traditions are based on old Beltane practices

 This is why we don't do it (or "easter", etc) hope you have a good day though!
