About Labour Day
“Labour Day” is celebrated by all over the World on May 1st that resulted from the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. This day is also called as “Labor Day”, “May Day”, and “International Workers' Day”. The celebration of “Labour Day” has its origins in the Eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. Most countries celebrate “Labour Day” on May 1, known as May Day and International Workers' Day. In Europe the day has older significance as a rural festival which is predominantly more important than that of the “Labour Day” movement. The holiday has become internationalised and several countries hold multi-day celebrations including parades, shows and other patriotic and labour-oriented events. However, in Northern Europe, Walpurgis Night is celebrated on the preceding night and this holiday merges with the “Labour Day” in some countries. May 1 is a national holiday in Albania, Argentina, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, China, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Hungary, Iceland, India, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Lebanon, Malaysia, Malta, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar (Burma), Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, the Philippines (spelled as "Labor Day"), Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, South Africa, Spain, Serbia, Sweden, Syria, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. In Slovenia, Serbia, Russia and Ukraine, May 2 is also a national holiday. In Poland, while May 1 is a national holiday, it was renamed from “Labour Day” to simply "State Holiday" in 1990.
