May Day, also known as International Workers' Day, is observed globally, including in India, on the 1st of May. As is customary in many nations, on this day, public and government institutions, along with schools and colleges, shut their doors.
The day has historical roots dating back to the infamous 1886 Haymarket affair in the United States. However, it only gained significant recognition in India starting in 1923. Additionally, May Day holds a cultural value in Europe as it heralds the onset of spring—a time associated with fertility and rejuvenation.
