Mayday

Откуда в русском языке появилась примета, что те, кто женятся в мае будут всю жизнь маяться, более-менее понятно.
Слова созвучны.

Но вот откуда это в английском?
Marry in the month of May, you will surely rue the day.


JANUARY : Marry when the year is new, he will be loving, kind and true.
FEBRUARY : When February birds do mate, you wed nor dread your fate.
MARCH : If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you will know.
APRIL : Marry in April if you can, joy for maiden and for man.
MAY : Marry in the month of May, you will surely rue the day.
JUNE : Marry when June roses grow and over land and sea you will go.
JULY : Those who in July do wed must labor for their daily bread.
AUGUST : Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see.
SEPTEMBER : Marry in Septembers shrine so that your life is rich and fine.
OCTOBER : If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
NOVEMBER : If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.
DECEMBER : When December snows fall fast, marry, and your love will last.
