    Annual holiday devoted to the recognition of working people's contribution to society. It is observed on the first Monday in September in the U.S. and Canada. It was first celebrated in New York City on Sept. 5, 1882, under the sponsorship of the Knights of Labor. Various U.S. states observed the holiday before 1894, when Congress passed a bill making Labor Day a national holiday. It is often celebrated with parades and speeches, as well as political rallies, and the day is sometimes the official kickoff date for national political campaigns in the U.S. In most other countries, workers are honoured on May Day.

    Thank you Kotsy, Ja Europe has such a day too.
    In Austria and Germany we know "Tag der Arbeit" - it is on May 1!
    Would need to look now how it is in the Netherlands - Ellis sure knows that.

    Where are you from? Does your country also celebrate such day?
    Labor Day, Day of work, Tag der Arbeit... let us know

    I'd love to read and learn how and what holidays diffrent countries are celebrating.
    And tell me which is your famous holiday and why.
