May Day is a holiday that is usually celebrated on May 1st. It has its roots in astronomy and is the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. In the late 19th century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers’ Day.
May Day IS also similar in spelling to the term “Mayday!” which comes from the French phrase M’aidez!, which means “Help me!” When using “Mayday” in a distress call, it is traditionally repeated three times and is used to communicated the most serious levels of distress.
