"May Day" has an interesting History, Pagans celebrated it as a day of romp, then Early Christians tried it to get some pomp,then it was banned by a Puritan Parliament for being too Merry then there it was kind of lossed then The Labo(U)r Movement used this day as a rallying cry, now it stumbles along with no real Authoritative backer. In the background the powerless are reigniting this day.
The London Trade Council founded in 1860 used this day for organising the "the Work Force"
