Labour Day 2017

Labour Day, which is also known as May Day, has its origins in the labour unions. Labour Day arose from the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours of work, eight hours of recreation, and eight hours of rest or sleep.

Around the world, Labour Day is tantamount to International Workers' Day, which falls on 1 May. Labour Day also signifies the beginning of the Spring season.

That said, for some countries, such as Canada and the USA, Labour Day (strictly speaking, Labor Day) is celebrated on a different date, often one with special significance for the Labor movement in these two countries. Their Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and is considered the official end of their summer holiday, as public school and university students return to school around that day.

In the United Kingdom, May Day is still celebrated in many towns with the crowning of the May Queen.

Meanwhile, in Hawaii, May Day is known as Lei Day to celebrate the islandís culture.

May 1 is a national holiday many European countries including Finland, Holland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain and Sweden.

Closer to home, in Singapore and Malaysia, Labour Day falls on a Sunday this year. As such, it will be observed on Monday too.

This means, you guessed it, a long weekend! So beat the crowds and the long Labour Day queues that are likely to form on this long weekend. Click here to claim your Tioman hotel room for your Labour Day long weekend now. Last-minutes available. No booking fee.
