It’s the 1st of May, and we all know that it’s a public holiday. It might not feel like much of a holiday, but today is actually a bunch of holidays in one. These are all the holidays, official and unofficial, that fall on this day. And I bet you only knew one of these.
Labor Day or Worker’s Day is a public holiday in a lot of countries around the world, including Ghana. The holiday falls on the 1st of May, but when that falls on a weekend, the official holiday is observed on the next week day. This holiday is observed with a day off for the general population.
I can’t believe I’ve gone my whole life without celebrating this obviously very important holiday. The 1st of May is Batman day, and the holiday celebrates one of the most significant pop-culture superheroes. This holiday is celebrated because Batman made his official debut on this date in 1939.
