[ClickPress, Wed Mar 16 2011] Many traditions and celebrations traditionally took place on 1st May throughout the United Kingdom. For convenience to the public, many May Day activities have been moved to the new May Day bank holiday.

Many celebrations take place during the weekend preceding May Day as well as on the Monday of May Day when many people are off from work and schools are closed. May Day is also a banking holiday in the UK so those with non-emergency related jobs can enjoy the day off. For those who work for the local administration, working on May Day gives extra salary to the employee. .

May Day is a celebration of the beginning of the spring season. In addition to the seasonal meaning, the day is also connected with romantic relationships and love. In addition to the normal May Day observance, the day will have extra special meaning in 2011 as the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton will occur on the Friday before the bank holiday.

Visitors to the region looking for hotels in Liverpool Airport can enjoy the many traditions of May Day, which include the act of Morris dancing, a traditional dance that has been handed down through the generations. Another traditional activity is the May pole dance where participants dance around a May Pole.
