This year we are having May Bank Holiday on a Friday because it is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. It stands for Victory in Europe Day and was the day when allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe.
It was the end of World War Two. People celebrated by having huge street parties. People dressed in red, white and blue, they hung up colourful bunting and they made lots of party food to enjoy with friends and neighbours.
On Friday lots of people around the country will be having parties to celebrate VE Day, but instead of having street parties, they will be celebrating in their gardens, living rooms and balconies. Perhaps you could have a celebration with your family and send us a photo.
Or maybe you would like to learn more about VE Day using the videos and information below. You could make an information poster about VE Day. You could pretend you are a child from 1945 and write a postcard to a family member telling them about your VE day celebrations. Or you could make your own radio broadcast to announce victory in Europe!
