Ministry of Propaganda - 02/May/2003: "L-Day?"

[Previous entry: "Best friends?"] [Home] [Next entry: "Bank holiday weekend"]


I always thought the 1st of May is Labour Day or May Day (depending on your political leaning). Looks like this has changed, at least in the US. In the US the 1st of May is now known as Loyalty Day (via This Modern World).

May 1, like most days on the calendar, is proclaimed some sort of "official day" by the U.S. government. May 1 has been Loyalty Day (and also Law Day) since 1958. Loyalty Day began as a response by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in the 1930s to Communist Party celebrations of May Day.
