What is Special about the 1st of May?

The 1st of May is a special day for a number of reasons. In Europe, it is considered to be the first day of summer. Traditionally, the occasion was marked with special celebrations such as ‘penny for the May bush’ in Ireland. May the 1st is a public holiday in many countries and commemorates international workers day.

May Day or Mayday?

The 1st of May is commonly referred to as ‘May Day’. This is not to be confused with the distress call ‘mayday’ which is often used in radio communications (e.g. by boats and airplanes) to alert the authorities that help is needed. This word ‘mayday’ is related to the French word ‘m’aidez’ which means ‘help me’.

Those of us who are caught up in addiction are living a life that is similar to a boat in the middle of a horrendous storm. The waves have become too big for us, and there is a real risk that that our boat with capsize completely or we will be crushed on the rocks. We send out a mental mayday because we know we can’t survive without some help.

May Day is When the Real Work Begins

May Day is International Worker’s Day. It can also be a good time to begin working on our own life. We have likely devoted many hours to our job, but how many have we devoted to our own personal happiness? The point of rehab is not just to help us to stop drinking or abusing recreational drugs, but to move on to a much better future. Isn’t that worth working for?

May Day in Thailand

May day is a public holiday in Thailand to mark International Worker’s Day. This year (2022), the public holiday will actually be in lieu on Monday the 3rd of May because the 1st lands on a Saturday

The month of May is during the low season in Thailand. This can be an ideal time to visit because it is less busy with tourists. This is the start of the rainy season, but it usually only rains at most for an hour a day, and there is plenty of sunshine to enjoy.
