In the late 1800s, May Day was briefly declared “Labor Day” or “International Workers Day” in the United States. A September celebration of workers won that holiday battle, though May 1 is still Labor Day in much of the rest of the world. In the U.S., the date now has a special place on the calendar for high school seniors: National College Decision Day. After school, Pelham Memorial High School seniors posed under the blooming cherry trees in front of the building for pictures with other students going to the same school, with groups of friends, with friends up in the trees. They all wore official shirts from the colleges they’d decided on, of course. There were also some photos taken in school. The echo of May Day’s history is appropriate. It took all of them a great deal of labor to get to May 1.
