May 1 celebrations and may pole dancing were forbidden in Puritan New England long before the Illuminati.
I remember when it was celebrated in the US with the giving of candy in the night, kind of an opposite to Halloween. People gave candy to the homeowner.
I guess it fell out of favor when the commies celebrated on that day.
I think so. When I was in first and second grade circa 1955, we had May Day at school with May poles and festive games. Later, around fifth grade, after we moved to NJ, we used to have "Play Day", although I don't recall if we still had May poles for that. I don't think so.
