Today we celebrate International Worker’s Day. In Romania, 1 May, the International Workers’ Day (Ziua internațională a oamenilor muncii) or simply 1/First of May (1/Întâi Mai) is a public holiday. During the communist regime, the day was celebrated by large state-organized parades in most cities, to which many workers were required to participate. After the revolution in 1989, 1 May continues to be an official public holiday, but without any parade or events.
We are celebrating 1 May having picnics and barbeques. Young people go on this day at the sea side to celebrate 1 May.
Happy International Workers’ Day!
