Russian Holidays

Spring and Labor Day – May 1
Spring and Labor Day is a public holiday, and most of public buildings, banks and educational centers are closed on this day.
It was a very important holiday in the former Soviet Union with huge parades and solemn meetings. Everybody was a part of the celebration. The streets were decorated with red flags, and people marched on the streets with boards, flags, and placards. The most popular 1st May slogan was: "Piece, Labor, May!” Those who did not participate in marching watched the parade on the sidewalks or from their windows.
Nowadays many organizations still participate in parades. People enjoy the holiday atmosphere.
Often people use this holiday to go to their country houses (dachas) as this 2 day holiday is the perfect time for planting crops.
