Long weekend, that´s what most of you are thinking right now. Yeahhhhhh !! We are celebrating today the Labor Day !!
Labor Day is an annual holiday celebrated along the globe to celebrate the achievements of workers.
This excellent day has its origins in the labor union movement. (Specially the “eight-hour day” movement, which defended eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest)
For many countries, Labor Day is linked with the International Workers´ Day (May 1st) .
For some other countries, Labour Day is celebrated on a different date than May 1st; often one with special significance for the labour movement in that country.
In Canada, this day is celebrated today: the first Monday of September and is considered the official end of the summer holiday for most of the country, as public school and university students return to school that week or the following week.
I hope you enjoy this day, and if you want you can comment and tell us what´s the best way to spend the Labor Day !!
P.S. Just remember guys, that today our office will be closed. 😉
