Everybody loves a bank holiday, a chance to relax and do something special with your free time. They were first introduced into the UK by the Bank Holidays Act of 1871 and were when banks traditionally closed for business. Many of these dates were based on older holiday traditions going back to early Christian and Pagan festivals, however. May Day, for example, was celebrated by the Romans with a day of dancing in honour of the goddess Flora. It later became a tradition in the 16th century for villagers to erect a maypole decorated with ribbons and dance around it during the holiday.
