    Todos los días se aprende algo nuevo...
    Yo recuerdo de mis días de colegio, cuando escribíamos ´"Día Internacional del Trabajo"... y estaba convencidísima.
    Lo que está claro es que ese día no se trabaja, ¿verdad?
    Un saludito, Laura.
    EVA.

    Este dia es en Mayo Primero debido a la gran influencia de los comunistas en america latina en los anios de la transicion. (1940- 1986)


    Labor Day is a national legal holiday that is over 100 years old. Over the years, it has evolved from a purely labor union celebration into a general "last fling of summer" festival.


    It grew out of a celebration and parade in honor of the working class by the Knights of Labor in 1882 in New York. In 1884, the Knights held a large parade in New York City celebrating the working class. The parade was held on the first Monday in September. The Knights passed a resolution to hold all future parades on the same day, designated by them as Labor Day.
    The Socialist Party held a similar celebration of the working class on May 1. This date eventually became known as May Day, and was celebrated by Socialists and Communists in commemoration of the working man. In the U.S., the first Monday in September was selected to reject any identification with Communism.
    In the late 1880's, labor organizations began to lobby various state legislatures for recognition of Labor Day as an official state holiday. The first states to declare it a state holiday in, 1887, were Oregon, Colorado, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. Then in 1894, Congress passed a law recognizing Labor Day as an official national holiday.
    Today, Labor Day is observed not only in the U.S. but also in Canada, and in other industrialized nations. While it is a general holiday in the United States, its roots in the working class remain clearer in European countries.
    It has come to be recognized in the U.S. not only as a celebration of the working class, but even more so as the unofficial end of the summer season. In the northern half of the U.S. at least, the summer vacation season begins with Memorial Day and ends with Labor Day.
    Many colleges and some secondary and elementary schools begin classes immediately after Labor Day. State parks, swimming pools, and campgrounds are all quite busy on Labor Day, as vacationers take one last advantage of the waning hot season. September is the month that marks the beginning of autumn. And, because of that, the average daytime maximum temperatures take a plunge during the month in most of the U.S

    Que yo sepa, en toda Europa se celebra el día 1 de Mayo como el día del trabajo, y no en septiembre.

    Hola,
    `
    En Canadá también se puede escribir así.

    I've also heard that in countries where labour day falls on May 1, it could be referred to as "May Day."

    Cheers!
