May 1-2 Spring and Labor Day

May 1-2 Spring and Labor Day. It was a major holiday in the Soviet Union and other Communist countries, and also in many other parts of the world. Even in today's Russia, it is an annual holiday devoted to the recognition of working people's contribution to society. A unique display of the most modern weapons and seemingly endless troops of soldiers is held in Moscow, the capital of Russia on this day. May day, until recently officially termed International Workers' Solidarity Day, is now known as Spring and Labor Day. Some years, it occurs on or close to Russian Orthodox Easter, so some people celebrate in church while others attend customary demonstrations.
