Every May 1 in the Azores, the locals put up "dummies", or "Maios", made of old clothes, to celebrate the common worker, or depict scenes from everyday life. (May Day, or May 1st, is Labor Day in many countries. "Maio" means "May"). Maios can also be about political or social issues- usually in a criticizing, but humorous, way. We drove around today and took some pics of the "Maios". The kids LOVED being on the lookout for "Maios".
