May Day and Memorial Day Sales: What's the Difference?
You might have noticed many online retailers advertising Memorial Day sales during the days and weeks preceding May Day. That's because, in the United States, 1 May is also a bank holiday, except they don't call it May Day, they call it Memorial Day.
In fact, the difference between May Day and Memorial Day isn't just a matter of semantics: they actually pay tribute to different things.
It's a pretty complicated affair but it's also rather interesting. Here's the lowdown: May Day is a traditional holiday celebrated all over Europe on the first day of May. Its origins hark all the way back to the days when the seasons dictated everyday life and tasks such as harvesting.
May Day celebrates spring though it's also considered the unofficial start of the summer. Commemorative events, such as big bonfires, are organised and the traditional Maypole is brought out and decorated with symbols of the local trade and produce. In the 19th century, 1 May was chosen by the Second International as the day when the proletarians of the world would get together and celebrate International Workers' Day.
This entwining of a collective celebration, embraced by everyone, with a political festivity closely associated with the communist party, became too irksome for the United States' government, so since 1970 the Memorial Day holiday has been moved from the last weekend of May to the first. Consequently, the unofficial start of the summer in the United States is Memorial Day, while Labor Day, celebrated around the world on May Day, in the USA marks the unofficial start of autumn on the first weekend of September. Such are the complications of this world.
The good news is that regardless of what you call it, 1 May usually brings lots of sun, the prospect of a long, hot summer and best of all, many irresistible sales.

Feeling Selfish? Treat Yourself on May Day 2020
One thing to remember this May Day bank holiday is that, perhaps more than ever, it's fine to be selfish and pamper yourself. Yes, we're all on lockdown and leaving the house suddenly feels like a wild act of rebellion but that is precisely why shopping online is so great: you can get anything you want with a single click. With summer (un)officially here and the hope that someday we'll all finally be able to return to our routine, this is a great moment to freshen up your look.

Now that you have the outfit, all you need is the shoes. Yes, even if you're lounging about, you can't hang out in your slippers all day.
