It shouldn't be the possessive "May's day", but just "May day" in English as far as I know. It also is "book club", and "summer night".

There could be some confusion with 'May Day' the holiday/festival/feast day, so they might have left it out for that reason.

That is exactly what I wrote and it accepted it. Perhaps you typed it differently.

"A day of May" is listed as the translation here, but it said "a day in May" was the correct answer. So which one is it?

"A day in May" is the more natural but "a day of May" is accepted.

No apostophe for lets, please. It's neither a contraction nor a possessive. But I like the whimsy.
