It would perhaps raise the standard of this blog if I described the origins of Labor Day in America or compared Labor Day with International Workers Day on May 1st.
But since it is not a public holiday but rather the first day of the school year here in England, I spent it labouring. (They labour over here doing what Americans call labor.)
I wanted to get the eves of our house repainted before I got too old to do the job. Unfortunately, I left it too late.
So instead of a mini-historical treatise which I’m too tired to compose
Best wishes for a Happy Labor Day!
