  1. 1. Holidays Calendar MAY, 2020 SOCIONADO
  2. 2. The merry month of May celebrates spring in full swing, and boasts a number of seasonal, foodie, and pop culture days. At Socionado we love celebrating 75 May holidays!
  3. 3. 01 MAY DAY Today, specifically in the United States as other countries, it is a celebration of the season of Spring. We’ve got the best tips to make sure that your May Day is one to remember! MAY 1 02 INTERNATIONAL SPACE DAY Space Day gives you the opportunity participate in the excitement and fascination of space. It's a topic of interest to millions, old and young alike. 03 SAVE THE RHINO DAY Native to Africa, this leftover from the age of Dinosaurs was hunted to near extinction. Hunters on safaris, killed Rhinos just for sport. Poachers hunted them for their horn.
  4. 4. 02 NATIONAL BROTHERS AND SISTERS DAY Today is dedicated to the people who (we hope) made your childhood memorable — your siblings. They’ve been there for you during the good times. And they haven’t left your side through the bad (even if they created it by getting you in trouble). MAY 2 01 FREE COMIC BOOK DAY Free Comic Book Day arrives every first Saturday of May (May 2.) Iconic publishers like DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Dark Horse Comics — along with others — join forces to make free comics available at more than 2,300 stores across the country.

  6. 6.  0I STAR WARS DAY The 1977 release of “Star Wars” changed Hollywood forever. Four decades later we’re still enthralled. Just last December, “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker”, was released in theaters. Following the previous two movies of the sequel trilogy, “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi”, the main Star Wars film franchise has come to a conclusion. So — Happy Star Wars Day this May 4! 02 NATIONAL BIRD DAY  National Bird Day was established by bird activists. It calls upon people to recognize the plight of captive birds. It also draws attention to exploitation of birds in the U.S. pet industry. On this day, organizers suggest we reflect upon the conditions of birds held in captivity. MAY 4
  7. 7. 01 CINCO DE MAYO On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial power, and a victory for the Mexican people. Cinco De Mayo is celebrated by Mexicans, and especially the Hispanic community in the U.S. It is a time of song, dance, partying, and in general a time to be proud to be of Hispanic descent. 02 NATIONAL TEACHER DAY Today, the official national day celebrates teachers by gift-giving and the showering of accolades from students and parents alike. The hashtags #TeacherAppreciationDay and #NationalTeachersDay are used on social media to show teachers making a difference to the world at large. MAY 5
  8. 8. 01 NATIONAL NURSES DAY If you think nurses are only found in hospitals, then think again! The majority of registered nurses (59%) practice elsewhere, such as a nursing home or on home visits. They work across communities to keep people worldwide happy and healthy, and National Nurses Day is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for their important work! 02 NO DIET DAY International No Diet Day is a good opportunity to re-assess and evaluate your weight management goals and perspective, and to make certain your efforts to be thin don't come at a risk to your health. If you decide that continuing your diet is right for you, then use today to take a one day break. MAY 6
  9. 9. 02 NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER According to the National Day of Prayer website, there’s a need for every individual to take time to personal repentance and prayer and to mobilize the Christian community. However, there’s no laws saying National Day of Prayer can’t be celebrated by all cultures, beliefs, and religions, and as America grew to become a multicultural nation, it is widely celebrated by more than just those in the Christian community. 01 NATIONAL TOURISM DAY If you are a tourist venue, use this day to really spread the word on what you are all about. As a tourist, use today in search of a new, exciting, and interesting place to go. And, look for deals that may be offered today. Don't just browse and dream. Book your travel plans today! 03 WORLD PASSWORD DAY Intel created World Password Day — the first Thursday of May (May 7) — to address the critical need for solid passwords. It’s simple, really. Most operating systems offer an easy way to create and store passwords. Apple’s “Keychain Access” is one example. You can also go online to generate passwords which are practically hacker-proof. MAY 7
  10. 10. 02 MILITARY SPOUSES DAY Military Spouses Day is a day to recognize and honor the real backbone of the military..... the spouses of our soldiers. This day recognizes the contributions made by military spouses to the spirit and well being of soldiers and military communities. Where would military moral be without their spouses behind them? MAY 8 01 CHILD CARE PROVIDER DAY Use today to let your child care provider know how much they are appreciated. Give them a card, and a big thank you. Small gifts are acceptable, but not a requirement.
  11. 11. 02 NATIONAL TRAIN DAY On May 9, 1869 the tracks of the two railroad companies met up at Promontory Summit, Utah. A golden spike was driven into the final connection of the two tracks. The first Continental rail line was 1,776 miles long. Towns, big and small, would soon sprout up along the route. MAY 9 01 NATIONAL MOSCATO DAY Grab a glass of vino and toast to National Moscato Day! Every May 9, we celebrate the tasty white wine we can’t help but love. Moscato is historically known as a dessert wine (no wonder it’s so delicious) and is originally from Piedmont, Italy. When you uncork a bottle, you can expect a blend of peachy, orangey, and nectarine flavors. In our book, a drink like that is definitely worth celebrating. Cheers!
  12. 12. 02 NATIONAL SHRIMP DAY Shrimp fans all across the country can come together to honor their love for the shellfish, commonly called the “fruit of the sea.” Shrimp are interesting characters, and some can even glow in the dark! MAY 10 01 MOTHER'S DAY The first Mother's Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.You can't do wrong in Mom's eyes. When you are hurt, or not feeling well....there is no one else that can help you more than Mom.First and foremost, spend time with her. If you absolutely can not be there, take time for a long phone call. Flowers, cards, candy and gifts are all part of the day. But, mom wants some time with you far more than anything else.
  13. 13. 02 TWILIGHT ZONE DAY Twilight Zone Day is mysterious, weird, surreal and perhaps a little scary. We can think of many other adjectives, but I think you get the picture. Every once in a while, you have a day like this. And, today is designed to be that day. MAY 11 01 EAT WHAT YOU WANT DAY What would you like to have to eat today? Okay, great.....health permitting, go ahead and have any and all of your favorite foods and snacks. Because today is Eat What You Want Day.
  14. 14. 01 LIMERICK DAY This day is a time to enjoy and get your fill of Limerick poems.A Limerick is a humorous verse or poem. It is five lines longs. It's name come from the city of Limerick, Ireland. The first two lines rhyme with the fifth line rhyme.  The third and fourth lines rhyme. 02 NATIONAL FATIGUE SYNDROME DAY Today recognizes the fact that sometimes life is just too tiring. Perhaps you're tired because you are not getting enough sleep. Perhaps, you're stressed out. Some people experience chronic fatigue from worrying, or due to problems. These are all common causes of persistent fatigue. Whatever the cause, use today to identify it, and to correct it. MAY 12
  15. 15. 01 NATIONAL APPLE PIE DAY Apple pie has been around since the Middle Ages. A Dutch cookbook dated 1514 lists a recipe for Appeltaart. It called for a standard pie crust, slices of soft seedless apples, and a few tasty spices—specifically cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, mace, and sugar—all cooked up in a traditional Dutch oven. 02 FAIR TRADE DAY On May 13, Fair Trade Day will honor the movement for a world in which all laborers are paid more fairly for the work they do and the products they create.

Pizza’s the very definition of a good time and your May 15 options are plentiful. 02 NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP DAY 03 INTERTIONAL DAY OF FAMILIES National Chocolate Chip Day celebrates and enjoys sweet, tasty chocolate chips. Chocolate chips are a great invention, and certainly deserve a little recognition. After all, where would chocolate chip cookies, cakes and muffins be without the chocolate chip!? Families—both traditional and non-traditional—are the foundation of society. Some of the most formative years of our lives are spent growing up with our families, so they should be celebrated! MAY 15

It could be the ability to buy whatever you want, travel the world, practice philanthropy on a grand scale, or just eliminating debt. Whatever your personal dreams may be, let’s all celebrate National Be a Millionaire Day on May 20, by doing at least one thing that makes us feel like a million. The point is, while you’re on your way to becoming a  millionaire, focus now on whatever it is that makes you feel rich! 02 PICK STRAWBERRIES DAY Pick Strawberries Day is a sweet, tasty way to enjoy a late spring day. If your mom or dad ever took you picking fresh strawberries, you have a wonderful childhood memory.
  23. 23. MAY 21 01 NATIONAL WAITSTAFF DAY Just for a minute, think about all the people who serve you food and drinks: the barista that remembers just how you like your incredibly complicated coffee drink, the waiter at the sandwich spot who helps sort out all your large group’s orders, the bartender who serves your gin and tonic with a side of English distillery history. Now put yourself in their hopefully very comfortable shoes. Yep, that’s what we though.On May 21, National Waitstaff Day, let’s turn the tables, and serve these special people a super-sized helping of our appreciation. 02 NATIONAL MEMO DAY Take a memo... Today is National Memo Day. What is it for? Who created it? Why? These are questions awaiting an answer that may never come.

Preferably, listen to them today as they are being played by a live jazz band 02 NATIONAL TAFFY DAY On May 23, we celebrate our favorite sweet and chewy treat on National Taffy Day.

  26. 26. 01 NATIONAL BROHTER'S DAY May 24 is National Brother’s Day, so call your brother and tell him you love him, even though he’ll say you‘re weird afterwards. When you were younger, you argued over LEGOs or whose turn it was to sit in the front seat. Yet in some strange way, those childhood squabbles served to make you closer over the years. 02 NATIONAL SCAVENGER HUNT DAY Scavenger hunting, which originally evolved from folk games, became especially popular in the U.S. during the 1930s, and regular events are still held today, notably at schools like the University of Chicago.Whatever style appeals to you, celebrate National Scavenger Hunt Day on May 24 by either participating in a hunt, or planning one of your own! MAY 24
  27. 27. 01 MEMORIAL DAY Memorial Day, May 25, for many Americans, conjures up images of hamburgers, hot dogs, swimming pools, and summertime . But the last Monday in May serves, most importantly, as a time to honor those who died while fighting in the U.S. Armed Forces. It’s a holiday steeped in somber American history and tradition. The day actually began as “Decoration Day,” following the Civil War, when mourners placed flowers on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers. Yes, Memorial Day has also come to signify the “unofficial” start of summer, but let’s remember the heroes who made it all possible. 02 NATIONAL WINE DAY We don’t typically need an “official” reason to celebrate over a bottle of wine but today we have one – it’s National Wine Day, celebrated annually on May 25. MAY 25
  28. 28. 01 NATIONAL PAPER PLANE DAY The day is usually celebrated with contests in two basic flight categories: distance and time in air. The practice of constructing paper planes is sometimes referred to as aerogami, after origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. 02 SALLY RIDE DAY Sally Ride Day honors the first American woman astronaut to go into space.

  30. 30. 01 NATIONAL BRISKET DAY Unless you live in Texas, you might not have too much experience with the cut of beef known as brisket, but May 28 is a fine day to change that. Brisket is good for so much more than just barbecue or corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day. 02 SHAVUOT 02 NATIONAL HAMBURGER DAY Shavuot—or the Feast of Weeks—is a Jewish holiday, celebrated between May 28-30 on the Gregorian calendar. The holiday has both an agricultural and biblical significance. Agriculturally, it marks the wheat harvest in Israel. Biblically, it commemorates the day God gave the nation of Israel the Torah on Mount Sinai. Every May 28, National Hamburger Day celebrates America’s most iconic food. Americans eat over 50 billion burgers a year, so it’s only fitting we set aside a whole day for these special sandwiches MAY 28
  31. 31. 01 LEARN ABOUT COMPOSTING DAY May 29 is National Learn About Composting Day! We all want to do our part to conserve natural resources and reduce our carbon footprint. Composting is not only an environmentally safe fertilizer but it can help you save water, energy, fuel, and money! It also keeps toxins from getting in our run-off and groundwater through the use of chemical- based commercial fertilizers. The use of a natural fertilizer made from compost will make your garden hospitable to wildlife helpers like honeybees, hummingbirds and of course, worms! MAY 29
  32. 32. 01 MINT JULEP DAY Today is Mint Julep Day. It's a day to enjoy and savor this frosty and refreshing southern classic drink.Mint Julep is an bourbon based alcoholic beverage.

It's Water a Flower Day. This special day exists to reminder you to water your flowers...all of them. MAY 30
  33. 33. 01 WORLD NO TOBACCO DAY Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO) holds World No Tobacco Day on May 31. Their goal is to spread awareness about the risks of tobacco use and how we can make the world tobacco free. Roughly 6 million people die from tobacco-related ailments every year. And that number is projected to rise to over 8 million by 2030. But this is by no means a guarantee. The Sustainable Development Agenda aims to reduce deaths from noninfectious diseases by a third. Diseases linked to tobacco are on the list, so if we hit the target, 2030 will be a year to celebrate (oh yea!)—not only for our health, but the size of our wallets. Your average smoker drops around $4,000 on cigarettes annually. Imagine all of the other cool holidays you could enjoy with that money (we have a few suggestions, just saying). So let’s use World No Tobacco Day as a launching pad to a brighter and less smokey future! MAY 31
