May Day has a long and exciting history.
Since the late 19th century, Workers and Labor Unions have celebrated workers’ struggles and the rights derived from those struggles on May first. The European and former Eastern Bloc countries’ celebrations are similar in spirit to the Labor Day celebrations that take place in North America in September.
Before the industrialization of labor, May Day was celebrated by farming communities across the northern hemisphere. It was a celebration of Spring that predates Roman and Greek societies.
Traditions from antiquity are still practiced on May Day in Europe but are less popular in the US and Canada due to the Puritanical influence on those societies.
Despite the practices of early Puritan settlers on this continent, we would like to wish you a Happy May Day Weekend and extend an invitation to our May Day Sale.
