Background

Labor Day in Romania was celebrated for the first time in 1890. It was a popular event associated with political propaganda during the Communist era. However, after the Romanian Revolution of 1989, Labor Day was toned down to simply being a day off work and a holiday marked with social events.

The May 1 holiday is also known as May Day, which was originally a celebration of spring and rebirth taking place in nature.
