Labor day

1 Sep

China celebrates labor day with most of the rest of the world on May 1st.  The US, however, celebrates the first Monday of September.  It is not a holiday here, but in honor of the US holiday I looked through the photos of our trip to the US earlier this year.

Many people travel over the Labor Day holiday.  They can travel by car, train or plane.

I actually prefer road trips, but seem to have been on a lot of planes recently.

It means that you should take a rest from the ordinary.

Maybe it is going to a new place and seeing something new

It could mean taking a walk –

Great day for a walk - anyone recognize the folks crossing the street with me?

and seeing what is around (birdwatching anyone?).

Or just putting your feet up on the job.

Taking a break.

If you’re in the US, how are you celebrating your labor day?  If not, what would you do if given a day off?
