Is there really any point to any celebration? It's mooted that May day bank holiday is about to be banned, and the Wedding of William and Katie? is a bank holiday, but not recognised as a bank holiday by businesses?
So are these holidays to exploit commercial interests?
Mayday, used to be important, with Maypole dancers, and Morris dancers, that's a tradition, but a bank holiday, to celebrate Hitlers marriage, sorry, William and his bride.
