May Day in the US and Europe, not really celebrated anymore though. I've heard that it was originally a pagan holiday with big bonfires and <cough> 'interesting' rituals. :)

I don't think this is the full list, but there's a few places listed here [norrweb.com]

All I know is a holiday normally means the missus has me doing chores around the house. It's nice to go back to work for a rest.

From the Library of Congress site:

Every Year - May 1 remains the official date, but Law Day often becomes Law Week (or Weeks!) ...

May 1st is Workers' Day in Russia.
Down with the exploitative capitalist-landlord class!
Down with the capitalist-imperialist oppressor nations!
Forward to a brave new glorious socialist future!

I think I may be a couple of decades late with this kind of talk, but it was visionary, wasn't it?! Lots of people have naff jobs and feel overworked and underpaid with too much stress and not enough holiday. Imagine the government agreeing with you and fighting your quarter against your idiot of a boss. (Well, theoretically at any rate).

I understand it's also Buddha's birthday or something similar. In Malaysia we should have had a Labour Day holiday and a holiday for Buddha's Birthday on the same day, so the government has made the 2nd a holiday as well.

I must admit that I miss the maypole dances etc. which you get with May Day and not with Labour Day!
