@ajroach42 "Loyalty Day" was created to replace "International Workers' Day" or, "May Day," or "Labor Day" on May 1. It was essentially an anti-labor, anti-Communist move on the part of Eisenhower and is the reason why the U.S. is the only country that doesn't have its Labor Day on the same day as the rest of the world.

@ND3JR @ajroach42 UK also doesn't; it's 'Early May Bank Holiday' here today; that's usefully neutral to anything other than taking a day off.
