May 1 has recently turned from the international day of proletarian solidarity
May 1 has recently turned from the international day of proletarian solidarity, as it was called in the Soviet times, into the holiday of spring and labor. Today only 24% of Russians, mainly elderly people over 60, consider May 1 a proletarian holiday, while 40% regard it as the official spring holiday. 26% of Russians see it as an additional day-off and not as a special holiday. And other 10% consider it an ordinary workday. These are the data of the poll conducted by the all-Russia center for public opinion studies from April 17 to 18. All in all, 1,600 adult Russians were polled. Most young Russians avoid any ideological interpretation of this holiday and consider it mainly as an additional day-off. According to 60% of respondents, May 1 as a heritage of the different historic epoch is losing importance. However, 37% believe that we need this holiday nowadays.
