Why is there a May bank holiday?

May Day is officially know as the Early May Bank Holiday. It is held on the first Monday of May each year.

May Bank Holidays

On Bank Holidays, generally on a Monday, all shops and banks are closed. But why are they called Bank Holidays, when it's not just Banks who get the day off? …. Bank holidays were first introduced by the Bank Holidays Act of 1871, which designated four holidays in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and five in Scotland.
