The English word for vacation is holiday.
And the month of May is like pre-summer holiday.  3 of the 4 weeks have jours ferié.  That means May 1, 6, 8, 9, 19 & 20 are all off.  And the French generally fait le pont (fay leu pohn make the bridge). 
So the 8 & 9, add the pont and you have a 5 day weekend. 
Nothing happens in Paris in May.  Much like July & August.  But unlike July & August, May usually has good weather.  Sadly - May has forced le sigh out of my mouth more than once.  See this
