May 25th Memorial Day in the U.S.
May is Asian-Pacific-American Month in the U.S.
Has many links on teaching a wide variety of Asian and Pacific cultures.  There are more and I have used other areas but it does have a wide variety in one place.
So what other holidays are there in May from around the world?
Also found this interesting as a funny side note....
