So what? 1st or 7th its just a wast of a day. Nothing will happen. Go to work and honor your job whatever it is. And you will get the best. The country will prosper.

May Day is a day of celebration for the work force not for political parties to have rallies, first time in the history of the world

Why don't you make it on 1st of June call it June day instead of May day! As it is I am afraid that you may change New Year Day from 1st of January to 7 January. Please tell us whether Mahinda's astrologer advised you to do this change?.
