On May 1953, Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to reach the summit of Mount Everest, do we use "on" before May, 1953?

    "In," not "on." If you are specifying a single day ("On May 15, 1953....") you use "on." For any longer period of time (a month or a year or a century) you use "in" ("In the 20th century,....")

    In may. 

    If you say the specific day then it would be on may the 29th
