labour day or labor day??!!

I totally love this pic!!!

what is it people? I have become curious why Canadians and Americans spell and say some words differently...(After I got royally laughed at for saying ZED...i'm over it already, trully, I am.)  I did a study and I found out that the USA is totally a minority because they say ZEE. Australia and European countries all say ZED as well as   Canada... (or so the internet says!!)  and the reason Canadians spell and say things different and talk different is because, well, I think it's all because we have a Queen!!! laugh. I made that up!!  Some of the spelling comes from the French and some of it from 'London' and some of it we probably made up!!!
 Anyhow back to Labour Day...does any one really know why we celebrate it? this is the reason- Labour Day or Labor Day is an annual holiday celebrated all over the world that resulted from the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.- What is Labour day to you? did you attain any social achievements this year? if yes, than we are celebrating YOU!!!!yeah!! One of James' friends texted him this morning and said this- Happy non-labor day to all the singles out there! for the married folks, its still labor day...it's like the national honey-do day,-  I laughed out loud!!
  My house is too little to have a honey do list- but if I did have one it would probably include- doing the laundry and washing dishes... my honey- do lists are usually  veeeery simple and basic.like me. simple.
 so tell me- how are you celebrating Labour day/labor day...? however you do, be safe and have fun!!!
