An end of day LaboUr Day message

A quick Labour Day message from David yesterday

And that emoji? Is it …

A grimacing face?

Or maybe he was going for “Grinning face with smiley eyes”.

Subtle difference, but it’s all in the eyes.  Right?

Howling for David?

Looks like some wishful thinking for a David Archuleta performance, but we had some fun with this regardless.  Who knows?

While the theme changes every year, students can look forward to activities like concerts, dances, hypnotists, air brush tattoo artists, oxygen bars, and other activities that are sure to entertain all night long. As the popularity of this event has grown over the years, it has become a rite of passage for many.  Source.

Today is the first day back to school for many jurisdictions, like most of Canada.  And… I forgot to mention yesterday that we are now into September!

September?  How can that be?

This summer has flown by and we are wishing all of you and  your families a welcome back to realities of school and activities and renewed friendships that we often associate with this time of year!

Happy Labor/Labour Day David Archuleta fans! What does Labor/Labour Day signify? Goodies from the past, More from Nashville, TAGGB revisited

Labor Day ~ What does it mean?

In the United States, Labor Day is a federal holiday observed on the first Monday of September. It is customarily viewed as the end of the summer vacation season. Many schools open for the year on the day after Labor Day. The holiday is shared with Canada, where it is known as Labour Day. Source

Labor Day is a celebration of the  labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.  Source

While Labour Day parades and picnics are organised by unions, many Canadians regard Labour Day as the Monday of the last long weekend of summer. Non-union celebrations include picnics, fireworks displays, water activities, and public art events. Since the new school year generally starts right after Labour Day, families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer.

An old fashioned tradition in Canada and the United States frowns upon the wearing of white after Labour Day. Explanations for this tradition vary; the most common is that white is a summer colour and Labour Day unofficially marks the end of summer. The rule may have been intended as a status symbol for new members of the upper and middle classes in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Check out this wiki source for a list of countries around the world and their celebration of Labour Day.  And we know there are David Archuleta fans in most of these listed!  Wiki

If you celebrate today, or if you celebrate International Workers’ Day, tell us about it in comments!

Australia ~ Bangladesh ~ Bahamas ~ Canada ~ Jamaica ~ Jordan ~ Lebanon ~ New Zealand ~ Trinidad and Tobago ~ United States

Here are some Labour/Labor day goodies from the past!

More on that convo in Nashville

Yesterday I posted a convo a fan in Nashville had with David at the airport.  He tweeted again yesterday with a few more details.

David has said to fans on various occasions he is working on new music.  I’m not thinking too far ahead here, but sounds like there might be sufficient quantity for at least considering a CD at some point.  That’s awesome news for us fans!

did he say new album

Ending with a Labour Day performance

David’s only performance of Things Are Going To Get Better on the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon.  I’ll post the Behind the Scenes vids in comments.

I’ll be back tomorrow with all the Back to School updates!   Have a good celebration today for all those taking part in Labor/Labour Day.  Today especially is a good time to think of all the sacrifices of those who have performed work of any kind to help build our countries into what they are today.

Ciao!
