Victory in Europe Day

Victory in Europe Day, commonly referred to as V-E Day, is a globally observed holiday held on May 8th. In 1945, it marked a public holiday in the United States, commemorating the formal acceptance of Nazi Germany's surrender received by the Allies on May 7th, 1945. While the U.S. hasn't officially observed it since 1945, numerous countries worldwide continue to recognize V-E Day, although not all adhere to the May 8th date.
