    When I was a young lad, back when Moby Dick was a minnow, and i was growing up in a small town in Nebraska, we had the custom of making up little baskets with flowers and candy in them and then bringing them to the houses of members of the opposite sex. We would place the basket on their front porch and then ring the doorbell or knock on the door and then run. The person receiving the basket was supposed to chase you and if they caught you they would give you a kiss. Usually if it was someone i really wanted to get a kiss from i would, accidentally of course, trip and fall so they would catch me and give me a kiss.

    No problem luckymenan...I think it is kind of unfortunate that the traditions like this one have kind of gotten lost in todays world. No more innocence left i guess. :thank you:

    It is so true that now these days we don't have much pureness... I remember when I was a teen, I used to buy millions of pretty candies and wrapping papers,ribbons,stickers,basket...for my secret admire on Valentines day, shy and innocent, so much efforts to make something nice to show how I feel...:apple: now I see my daughter and her friends...wow, they really are missing out so much behind computer, cell phone, tv, naughty music-(you have no idea how naughty they are!)-, KIDS THESE DAYS WILL NEVER KNOW ANYTHING LIKE MAY BASKET WHAT'S WORSE THEY WILL THINK IT'S SILLY...WHAT A SHAME!!!:sad:
