The last summer long weekend is coming and everyone is excited about the extra days off. But that also means that many stores and other businesses will be closed, to be able to let people go and enjoy the weekend.
School is back, and it’s the last long weekend of Summer 2019, let’s make it a good one!
Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. In Canada and the United States, it is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the official end of the summer holiday for most of the respective countries, as public school and university students return to the school that week or the following week.
