Spring Bank Holiday is usually the last Monday in May and was traditionally named Whit Monday. This was a the day after the traditional Whit Sunday which was used to commemorate the Holy Spirit to the church. The date was changed in 1971 to make it take place on the last Monday in May rather than the previous date which was the day after 7 Sundays after Easter.
