    Yes, Mayday is the holiday with which European socialists co-opted Beltane.

    As for the Catholics, having a Catholic family and having been raised catholic I have to say i do not know of a many catholic holidays that aren't replacements for earlier pagan holidays that took place on the same time. Ever wonder why christams just happens to be on the winter solistice? Or where the yule log comes from? yeah.
