Happy Labour Day from

Hello everyone,
We just want to wish a safe and fun Labour Day long-weekend to everyone!

Labour day is celebrated throughout the world. It originated from the Labour movement which expressed that workers should only have to work 8 hours per day, having 8 hours for recreation and 8 hours for rest. Most countries have their Labour Day in May but Canada and the US have been celebrating it on the first Monday of September since the late 1800's.

I feel that Labour Day is the symbolic marking of the end-of-summer and beginning of school. When I was younger, this holiday turned my tummy into a big nervous knot but now that I'm an adult, it's just another great long-weekend!

Good luck to all you kids out there beginning a new school year! Now's the time get your labels and bag tags so you can walk into class with style!
