Can One Celebrates Labor Day...

...If One doesn't Work?

It’s Labor Day in China and in most countries of the world. What use to be one of the three Golden weeks in China allowing millions of Chinese people to travel during this period have been reduced down to 1 day since last year. In exchange Dragon Boat Festival (端午节) and Tomb-Seeping day (清明节) have been added as a non-work day.

On May 1st it is the custom in France to offer loved ones little bouquets of Muguet (Lily of the valley) in a gesture of friendship and in celebration of spring.
