Font:〖L M S

May Day, or Labor Day, is a public holiday in China. This holiday always falls on May 1. This year’s May Day holiday begins on April 29 and lasts until May 1.

The history of International Workers' Day in China started in 1919, when the intelligentsia initiated insurgencies in Shanghai. Later, in 1920, Beijing and Shanghai held the first-ever demonstration in honor of all workers. Officially, this holiday was established and approved by the Chinese government in 1949.

Today, Labor Day in China is a sort of a cheerful family holiday. During these three days of holidays, people go to the country, meet friends, and attend solemn events. Many people also choose to travel to cities around their home.
