The first of May is observed in Canada, the United States and parts of Western Europe to celebrate the coming of spring. A variety of customs, such as maypole dancing, garland making, and the crowning of a May Queen at community events are still practiced today.

This date is also known as International Workers’ Day in honor of labourers and labour organizations.
