The Labor Day observed on 1st May in France is actually the amalgam of several holidays established in the 19th century to celebrate workers (the proletariat). In 1889, in honour of the centennial of the French Revolution, 1st May became associated with labour's fight to obtain an eight-hour workday. In early 20th century Paris, seamstresses gave three sprigs of lily of the valley to their workers and little helpers, but we will have to wait until 1976 to celebrate this day on 1st May.
