This holiday is also sometimes known as International Workers’ Day or May Day.

For the most part, you don’t see the parades and protests on Labour Day that are common in many other countries and in times past. It’s mostly a day to relax at home. People are off work and many shops and restaurants are closed.

Some people spend the day at a local park or museum or go on a short vacation within the country.
