On the first day of a month, the delighted utterance of ‘Rabbits’ is customary in some cultures. These long-eared animals are seen to scamper with particular energy in April, from association with Easter Eggs. When the next month comes, one has had enough, so Mayday is uttered. This comes from the French for ‘Help me’.
M’aidez is what you say
When call for aid should be made …
S.A —Worker’s Day.
