The First of May, also known as May Day, is celebrated in various ways all over the world. In more than 80 countries, it is known as International Worker's Day and is marked by street demonstrations and marches of labour union members. In other places, May Queens are crowned with wreaths of flowers and there are dances around May poles.
Here in the States, many children make May baskets, filled with flowers and left anonymously on door steps. In 1958, President Eisenhower proclaimed May 1 Law Day to cultivate respect for the law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.
Dear readers, do you acknowledge or celebrate May Day in any way? Please share, I would love to hear!
