May is the fifth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with the length of 31 days. No other month begins or ends on the same day of the week as May in any year. 

Gemini is the zodiac sign for this month and symbolizes success and love. It is also considered an air sign, and is one of four mutable signs. Gemini has been closely associated with the planet Mercury and is considered to be ruled by it.

The birth flowers for May are the Lily of the Valley and the Hawthorn.

May's birthstone is the emerald.

May’s full Moon is known as the full Flower Moon because flowers spring forth in abundance at this time. Some Algonquin tribes also knew this full Moon as the Corn Planting Moon, the Moon When Women Weed Corn, or the Milk Moon. 

May was once considered a bad luck month to get married. There is a poem that says "Marry in May and you'll rue the day".
