According to the Julian and Gregorian calendars, May is the fifth month of the year, and the third of seven months with 31 days.

In the Northern Hemisphere, May is spring, whereas in the Southern Hemisphere, it is autumn. As a result, in the Southern Hemisphere, May corresponds to November in the Northern Hemisphere, and vice versa. In the United States (Memorial Day) and Canada (Victoria Day), the summer vacation season begins in late May and concludes on Labor Day, the first Monday in September.

May (Latin: Maius) is named after the Greek goddess Maia, linked to the Roman goddess of fertility Bona Dea, whose festival took place in May. On the other hand, the Roman poet Ovid claims that May is called after the maiores, Latin for “elders,” and that the next month (June) is named after the iuniores, Latin for “young people” (Fasti VI.88).

In May, there are special devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Mayovka was a picnic in the countryside or a park in the early days of May in the late Russian Empire, thus the name. “Mayovka” (particularly, “proletarian mayovka”) eventually came to signify an unlawful May 1 celebration by the revolutionary people, usually disguised as a benign picnic.

In May, the Eta Aquariids meteor shower occurs. Each year, it may be seen from April 21 to May 20, with peak activity on or around May 6. The Arietids are in full bloom from May 22 to July 2, peak on June 7. In May, the Virginids also rain at various times.

The festival of Bona Dea fell on May 1, Argei on May 14 or 15, Agonalia on May 21, and Ambarvalia on May 29, according to the old Roman calendar. Floralia took place on April 27, or April 28 on the Julian calendar, during the Republican era, and continued until May 3. According to the Julian calendar, Lemuria (festival) occurred on May 9, 11, and 13. Rosalia (festival) celebrations were held at the College of Aesculapius and Hygia, one on May 11 and the other on May 22. On May 24″26, Pergamon also commemorated Rosalia. On May 31, a military Rosalia celebration, Rosaliae signorum, was held.

From May 29 to June 1, Ludi Fabarici was commemorated. On the Ides of May, Mercury would be sacrificed (May 15). Tubilustrium was held on the 23rd of May as well as the 23rd of March. These dates do not correlate to the Gregorian calendar as we know it today.
