May Holidays & Observances

May is the fifth month of the calendar year and the middle of spring in the northern hemisphere. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and many of us rush to get outside after the long winter months of cold and wet. No wonder we have so many great celebrations happening in May, so get ready to make your new printable May calendar!

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a yearly celebration on May 5 to commemorate Mexico's victory over the French army in the Battle of Puebla. The battle took place in Mexico on May 5, 1862, and saw a smaller, more poorly equipped Mexican force defeat a larger and better equipped French force. These days, Cinco de Mayo is seen as a day to celebrate Mexican culture and achievements. It is not a public holiday. Read more about Cinco de Mayo.

National Nurses Day

Monday, May 6, is National Nurses Day. Some even spend the entire week honoring our nurses. This year, that would stretch from May 6 to May 12 (which is Florence Nightingale’s birthday). Within this week, there is also a National Student Nurses Day on May 8. On the Wednesday of National Nurses Week, we take a moment for National School Nurse Day. Let’s celebrate all our hard-working nurses this year!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week overlaps with National Nurses Day, running from May 6 to May 10 this year. Teachers spend so much time with our children, helping them grow and learn. That’s why the U.S. sets aside the first full week of May to honor them.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is celebrated in the U.S. on the second Sunday of May each year. It is not a public holiday. People use the day to honor the contribution of mothers and mother figures. Many people give gifts and cards to their moms or organize special family outings. Read more about Mother's Day.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It is a state public holiday. State government offices are closed, and some schools and businesses may also be closed. Memorial Day is a day for mourning the military personnel who have died in service. It was formerly known as Decoration Day. Learn more about Memorial Day.

May Monthly Observances

Some May holidays aren’t full holidays, but monthly observances. Do any of these speak to you?

  • Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
  • Mental Health Awareness Month
  • National Pet Month
  • ALS Awareness Month
  • Military Appreciation Month
  • What Does May Mean?

    May is a month, sure, but there’s a deeper meaning behind why we call it May and how it came to be what we know today. According to, May came from Latin and only came into English in the 1050s. It was originally the month of Maia, who was a Greek goddess. Maia was the mother of Hermes, who you might recognize as the messenger god.
