A lot of people in Nashville are from countries where May 1 is a national holiday celebrating the worker. The first day of May is actually the International Day of the Worker, officially recognized in over 80 countries, including most in Latin America. May 1 falling on Sunday this year pushes many of the official observations to Monday, May 2.
Although in the U.S. we celebrate Labor Day in September, it's one thing to celebrate the labor itself, and another to celebrate the laborer.
If you work, consider this your day. The world salutes you.
