    I recently discovered that the UK takes a curiously halfway approach towards making May 1 a public holiday. It’s a bank holiday, but the government refuses to officially acknowledge any connection with the labor movement or workers. Most bank holidays have descriptive names referring to the holiday they recognize: December 25 is called Christmas Day, January 1 is New Year’s Day, etc. But the holiday of May 1 is recognized under the rather bureaucratic name Early May Bank Holiday.

      Happy Early May Bank Holiday! In USA, May 1St is officially Law Day. I shit you not.
