A bit of history on this 1st of May: Appearing in the 18th century, Labour Day honoured the work of the workers.
Memory of the demonstration of May 4, 1886, which led to the Haymarket Square massacre in Chicago.
Today, with the passage of time, history has been forgotten, only to keep the best of it: a day of well-deserved rest, the brightness of a spring sky, the sun and above all the delicious scent of lily of the valley, which has become the emblem of this day.
But beware, so sweet and so beautiful the common lily of the valley or Convallaria majalis is toxic and dangerous. Just admire it and enjoy its sweet fragance.
Happy 1st of May confined!
