On this date in 1886, a national strike began in the United States, calling for an eight-hour workday instead of twelve hours.
May 1st is celebrated as International Workers’ Day 💼 and Batman Day 🦇 (although DC Comics seems to celebrate its superhero on September 18th).
Those of you that were born in May have the Emerald birthstone. Green is a color that signifies hope, the coming of spring, regeneration, and new growth. Even the word “emerald” comes from the ancient Greek “smaragdos,” which means “green gem.”
