May has just started, and there are a lot of exciting things happening! May is often overlooked when it comes to months of holidays, but there are a few holidays within the month that you can celebrate with family and friends all throughout the month.

The first upcoming, unofficial holiday is Star Wars day on May 4th. This is a day to celebrate the famous franchise. It is a day to geek out and celebrate by rewatching all of your favorite movies from the series.

The next holiday is Cinco de Mayo on May 5th. This holiday is the celebration of Mexico’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla. It is also a day to celebrate and reflect on Mexican-American culture in the US. Take the day to learn more about Mexican-American culture and have fun while doing so!

Next on the list is Mother’s Day on May 12th. This is a day to celebrate all of the hard work that moms, aunts, grandmothers and other female guardian influences put into raising us. Mothers can sometimes be overlooked, so this a great holiday to reflect and thank your mother for everything they have done.
