As if we didn’t have enough public holidays (see ya next year Easter Bunny), Labour Day Weekend is just around the corner! While its history revolves around strikes organised by intense labour unions back in the 1930s, but let’s not forget what Labour Day is really all about: a celebration to honour different professions. In some countries the holiday is celebrated with riotous (pun intended) street parades and festivals, but mostly we just get a day off (not complaining).
In any case, we’re not going to say no to a long weekend. And while we’re at it, we’re not going to say no to a luxurious long weekend. Here are some of The Luxe Nomad‘s Labour Day specials that you shouldn’t miss!
