Naming of May
The French is Mai and the old English is Maius. Its meaning is again from the Romans; It is taken from Maia, the Goddess of Rain. Also known as the Goddess who grows fertility and plants. The Latin language is Maius menelis (the bear of Maia). The word of Maia in Latin language means "fresh, wet beef manure". This period is thought to be given this name because of the high rate of rainfall. According to the Nishanyan Dictionary, the word "mag-ia" is derived from the word and there is no written example of this word.

Important Days for May 2024 in the USA
The month of May has two global important days. Firstly, May 1 - Day of Labor and Workers and May 10 - Mother's Day. Let's have a look at the historical backgrounds of these important days:
May 1 is the Day of Labor and Workers of unity, solidarity and challenging with injustice, celebrated worldwide by workers and laborers. In many countries around the world, it is considered as an official holiday. For the first time in 1856, in Melbourne, Australia, stone and construction workers organized a march from the University of Melbourne to the House of Parliament for an eight - hour working day. On May 1, 1886, under the leadership of the US Confederation of Trade Unions, workers quit their jobs with a demand of 8 hours per day, against a 12-hour and 6-day work schedule. Half a million workers attended the demonstrations in Chicago. In Louisville (Kentucky) more than 6,000 black and white workers joined together. At that time, the parks in Louisville were closed to black people. The workers walked into the National Park after walking the streets. In every state and city, the demonstrations of black and white workers together were interpreted by the newspapers as "Thus the prejudice wall was destroyed'. Repetition of this demonstration was prevented by legal pressures. In the Second International meeting, which was held on July 14 and 21,in 1889, it was decided that May 1 would be celebrated as " Day of Labor and Workers" all over the world with the suggestion of a French workers' representative. In time, 8-hour working days were officially accepted in many countries. May 1 was thus a feast reflecting the unity and solidarity of the workers. Today, workers celebrate May 1, which is a holiday in socialist countries (People's Republic of China, People's Democratic Republic of Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, Venezuela, Nepal, Bolivia) and many other countries with large mass demonstrations; May 1 in some countries takes the form of political action.
Celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May, "Mother's Day" is the subject of numerous events in many countries. When we look at the history of this very popular special day, we see that this tradition dates back to ancient times. This tradition began with the celebration of the annual spring festival of the ancient Greeks in honor of the well-known goddess Rhea, mother of gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. Then the ancient Romans began to celebrate the spring festivals in honor of Cybele, the mother goddess 250 years before Jesus' birth. The concept of Mother's Day began in 1908 as a commemoration day for Anna Jarvis, who lost her mother in the USA.
