Wow. Thank you. That is interesting. Is it the same Labor day as May 1st elsewhere?Labor Day (no "U") in the US will be September 6 this year. It is commonly considered "the end of summer" up North. It's the month when temperatures are only in the 90s down South.

Yes, I feel for them.I don't know. In the US, Labor Day is an official holiday, always on a Monday, so it is a three-day weekend. It was created to celebrate the labor movement in the US, but is now a day that everyone takes the day off, except for the laborers working for minimum wage at the stores and restaurants.
Are you saying that you've never had a pint at 5am in the Spoons at the airport like everyone else?When I lived in Oxford, I took part in one curious May Day tradition. Many pubs would open at six in the morning, just on that day. This, I thought, was something I should try once. I got up at about five o'clock and went into town to meet a few friends. We arranged to meet in a pub called the Wheatsheaf at six, when it opened. It is, let's say, a rather strange experience drinking beer when you've only just got up.
We ended up going to about four different pubs. Part of this was to avoid the loud, braying Hooray Henry types who were characterised by not only their loudness, but their insistence on drinking only expensive champagne and their contempt for the plebeian oiks that had the temerity to live in Oxford. So, yes, it's possible that there were future prime ministers and cabinet members among them...
