We are closed today because it is the May Day Bank Holiday. In the UK, we’ve had official bank holidays since 1871, when they were formally recognised by an Act of Parliament. On these days, banks were allowed to close, which is where the name comes from. It wasn’t long, however, before other types of businesses and schools began to close their doors as well. In the UK, people have been celebrating specific holidays for hundreds of years, long before the government made them official in 1871. Some of these holidays were closely tied to agriculture and rural life. The most famous example is the first May bank holiday, commonly known as May Day.
