May 1- May Day?
 What does May Day really mean? it depends on
whom you ask. Perhaps a celebration of spring. Or a
Christian holiday. Or maybe a day to honor workers.
But it’s certainly not Labor Day. Different countries,
religions, and politicians have put their own spin
on May Day’s original connection to fertility and
rebirth. Simply put, May Day on May 1 means a lot
of things.
 Maybe the 1960s-era hippies had the right idea by
wresting May Day from the Soviet show of military
might and the Catholic Church’s reverence to the
Blessed Virgin Mary. Instead, they created a whole
“flowers in your hair” maypole dancing celebration
of the rejuvenating power of nature’s rebirth each
spring. Whatever your political leanings or religious
beliefs, May Day is a good time to set aside differ-
ences and celebrate all that we have in common.
 May Day Activities may include giving flowers.
Traditionally, a gift of a “May basket” containing a
small plant or some flowers was given to a neighbor.
In France it would be a lily of the valley as decreed
by King Charles in the 16th century. This was often
anonymously left at their front door as a celebration
of spring. Today a small cutting or plant division
from your garden would be a nice way to revitalize
that tradition.
 May Day activities may include a May Day Dance.
Most common of the old traditions is a May Dance,
where young people holding colorful ribbons at-
tached to the top of a maypole dance around the pole
weaving in and out. The boys go in one direction and
the girls in another until they are pulled together as
the ribbons wrap around the pole.
 May Day may mean taking the day off. That’s
right. Show solidarity with the workers and police-
men who died in the violence surrounding the first
strikes for a safe work environment, known as the
Haymarket Affair. Your work is not the 16-hour-per-
day, seven-day-a-week nightmare they were pro-
testing, but eight hours off is enough time to show
support.
 May Day, however you enjoy it. It only comes
once a year.

Time Off
Two men working in a factory were talking. “I
know how to get some time off,” said one.
 “How are you going to do that?”
 “Watch,” he said, and climbed up on a rafter. The
foreman asked what he was doing up there, and the
man replied. “I’m a lightbulb.”
 “I think you need some time off,” the foreman said,
and the first man walked out of the factory. After a
moment, the second man followed him.
 “Where do you think you’re going?” the foreman
shouted.
 “I can’t work in the dark,” he said.
