May-Day celebrations are thrown to honor the spring season in the Northern hemisphere, an ancient spring festival, traditionally celebrated with maypole dancing. But is also known as the ‘International Workers’ Day’, created to raise awareness of poor conditions during the 19th century.
This year, May 3 is also a public holiday in the UK and Ireland, where they also celebrate ‘World Laughter Day’. In some countries, Mexican culture is commemorated on May 5, remembering the victory of the Mexican Army over the French Empire in the Battle of Puebla, although Mexicans do not really celebrate it as much as we would on other days such as Independence Day or the Mexican Revolution day. .
On the other hand, one of the most important celebrations in Mexico is Mother’s Day and it is always celebrated on May 10. This day is celebrated by inviting mom to dinner, giving her gifts, but above all our time and love. However, other countries celebrate it on the second Sunday of the month.
