Posted by: rfifield | May 1, 2012 Comments Off |

May first is celebrated as International Workers’ Day around the world, and is considered especially important in Russia and the former USSR. As a holiday, it is generally celebrated by giving people the day off, and there are frequently parades and demonstrations to mark the occasion as well. Areas outside of Eastern Europe also celebrate it!
