Cinco De Mayo is a Holiday in England?

It is this year. The first Monday of every May is considered a "bank holiday" in this country. All the shops are shut, all the banks are shut, pretty much the entire country closes down (especially if you live in a small town like we do). We're pretty lucky here, we get at least 8 days a year that most businesses are closed. And, if you work for a big corporation like Mike does, you get 2 weeks off at Christmas too. I wish the US would adopt some of the 'ways of life' from England. Wouldn't that be nice.
