May Day (the day) has several meanings. It is a spring festival and holiday celebrated in many cultures. These celebrations include singing, dancing and the secret delivery of May Baskets on the porches of neighbors. It also coincides with International Workers Day.
Mayday (the call) is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a way to signal distress on the radio.
