May (Murder) Day

May Day has always been a big celebration for winners such as the communist Chinese, the Nazis, and the old Soviet Union. Ostensibly, it's a celebration of workers and worker's rights. But, under these regimes worker's "rights" were and are, shall we say, more limited than in the West today. And considering that the three combined account for over 100 million killed under heel in the 20th century alone, I'm thinking May Day red might have a bit more to do with blood than with worker's rights. But, hey, who's counting?
