May has arrived, and with it a series of notable dates. The May page of one’s yearly calendar plays home to the annual celebrations of Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. Graduation celebrations begin in May, and enthusiasts of science fiction and pop culture try not to miss an opportunity to issue this punny greeting: May the Fourth Be With You. (Get it?

In modern times May 1, or May Day, is celebrated as International Workers’ Day.
