EVERYONE looks forward to the influx of bank holidays that arrive around Easter and May each year, and 2018 is no different. But what is May Day, how is it celebrated and when is our early May long weekend this year? What is May Day and when is the UK bank holiday? May Day is a holiday usually celebrated on May 1 and is a day that stems from ancient celebrations of spring. However, in England, May 1 is not a public holiday unless it falls on a Monday – instead, since 1978 the Spring bank holiday has always fallen on the first Monday of the month. This year, as May Day falls on a Tuesday, the bank holiday is on Monday, May 7. Unlike the other bank holidays, the first Monday in May is taken off from schools by itself, and not as part of an end of term or half term holiday. The reason for this is because the day has no Christian significance - so doesn’t fit into the usual school holiday pattern. In the UK, May 1 is also International Workers’ Day – or Labour Day. … [Read more...] about What date is the May bank holiday in 2018 and what happens on May Day in the UK?
