May 1st, National Holiday and a tradition

As in many countries, the Czech Republic observes May 1 as a national holiday marking International Workers’ Day.

In the last week or so of April, trees typically start flowering. This leads to a tradition connected to May 1st that is not connected to workers; kissing your sweetheart under a flowering tree.

A good spot for a spring kiss.
