May is the fifth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with the length of 31 days.
It is also a month within the northern season of spring.

The month of May was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility,
Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May.

In both common, no other month begins on the same day of the week as May.
This month and June are the only two months that have this.

Yet I can be found in everybody;
My existence is always in debate;
Yet I have my own style of music.
What Am I?
