The birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, called Gandhi Jayanti, is celebrated on October 2 in India. Gandhi was considered the "Father of the Nation," and on this day, special prayers are offered at the Gandhi Samadhi at Rajghat, Delhi, and celebrations are held all over the country.

The British still enjoy a May Day holiday, which was traditionally a Celtic festival called Beltane, when the beginning of summer was greeted with great bonfires in honour of the sun.
