Holidays in May (2020 Calendar)

Five months into the new decade and things have been doing pretty well. As far as I’m aware, students who are still in school should be closing in on finals. I would consider myself lucky since I graduated last semester. I’ve been hearing a mixture of meh and horror stories from people attending Zoom University. Now as summer starts to close in, let’s see some of the holidays that we all will be able to celebrate by ourselves at home since we will probably still be in quarantine for a while.
