May is the time of the year when the European Union hosts many events to celebrate the principles of peace and unity that it is built on. Due to the current pandemic situation all of these celebrations have been cancelled. However, online we still have the opportunity to enjoy various festive events with special discounts for EU citizens. One of these discounts is our 80% OFF discount on new .EU registrations which you can now find on our site.
What are the EU celebrations in May about?
Each year, two important days for Europe are celebrated at the beginning of May:
- 5th May: the day the Council of Europe was founded in 1949;
- 9th May: the day when the Schuman Declaration was signed in 1950. This declaration proposed the creation of a European institution that would regulate coal and steel production and thus make war between Europe’s nations unthinkable. This led to the foundation of the European Coal and Steel Community – the predecessor of what is now the European Union.
2 days ago (7 May), both days are called Europe Day in recognition of the principles of peace and unity that both the Council of Europe and the European Union have achieved since their formation. Europe Day was recognized formally by the European Parliament in 2008.
Over the years it has been celebrated with many events such as the Open Day when everyone can visit the European institutions and see where the EU is managed from. In quarantine times our customers who are European citizens, or who are connected to Europe in some way, can celebrate Europe Day online throughout May thanks to our new .EU promotion.
