In Hawaii, it is known as lei day! So, don a lei if you wish for this spring party!
Starting in the 1700's, many Roman Catholics observe May Day with devotions to the Virgin Mary, and the feast day of St. Joseph the Worker (Mary's husband) is celebrated on this day.
In many countries, a popular tradition is dancing around a maypole and crowning the Queen of May. What is a Maypole? It is a tall wooden pole with garland hung from them. The earliest reference of a Maypole in England comes from the 1300's.
