Summary
You don't have any choice. You have to celebrate this holiday - it's the Law... Day.

In 1958, President Eisenhower recognized the first Law Day when he proclaimed that henceforth May 1st of each year would be Law Day in the United States. He stated "In a very real sense, the world no longer has a choice between force and law. If civilization is to survive it must choose the rule of law."

Law Day is held to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession.

Law Day is an observance and is not a federal public holiday in the United States. Schools, post offices, stores and other businesses and organizations are open as usual.
