May Day is an ancient European spring holiday that has its roots in pagans’ customs. Many areas, especially in the UK, still celebrate this holiday on May 1. One of the interesting traditions is choosing the May Queen who leads the May parade. Wearing a nice white dress, she opens the festival.
Then all people have fun and dance around the maypole.
In some US cities, people can leave the May basket at the doorstep, ring the bell and run away. If caught, the giver will get a kiss in exchange for the basket.
2. Labor Day
Labor Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, is also celebrated on May 1. It is an official holiday in most European countries. Different socialist and communists parties hold parades.
3.Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5 in the USA and Mexico. Mexicans and Mexican Americans commemorate the Mexican force’s victory over French army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This victory, which seemed to be rather unlikely is a source of great national pride for people of Mexican origin. People sing and dance to commemorate the great victory.
So, we wish you nice and colorful celebrations!
