May Day

Date When Celebrated: Always May 1st

May Day, the first of May is celebrated around the world. May Day has been celebrated since ancient times. Spring festivals, parades and maypoles are important traditions on this day. It has a number of meanings. In many other countries it is a celebration of spring and the coming of summer. It is celebrated with many spring flowers, many of them blooming right in your own backyard. To communist and socialist countries, it is a celebration for the workers.

In many countries it is celebrated as part of a one to three day holiday. Of particular note, it is not a national holiday in the United States, except in Hawaii where it is known as "Hawaiian Lei Day".

In about 140 countries, May Day is also Labor Day, and is a worker's holiday. In many of these countries, the Labor Day holiday is on May 1 unless it falls on a Saturday or Sunday, when it is held on the following Monday. Only three countries, the United States, Canada and Bermuda observe Labor Day in September.
