The name is now used as a blanket term for all maay holidays in the UK as banks, government offices and most businesses are closed on these days, although an increasing number of smaller shops and larger retail businesses remain open. Savers are facing further misery as base rate continues a record low. It is called May Day in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is known as the Early May Bank Holiday in Scotland.

It probably originated as a Roman festival honoring the beginning of the summer season (in the northern hemisphere). Maypole dancing is a popular tradition on the Early May Bank Holiday.
