Loyalty Day was first observed in 1921 as “Americanization Day” to counterbalance Labour Day on May Day, celebrated in different parts of the world.

Observances started on April 28, 1950, and peaked on May 1 when more than five million individuals the country over held arouses. In New York City, more than 100,000 individuals revitalized for America.

For a while, both Loyalty Day and Americanism Day celebrations took place throughout the country on May 1, but the two ideas soon merged into Loyalty Day.
