Fun Fact Friday

Just as the United States celebrates Labor Day, Costa Rica also observes Labor Day as a national holiday.

According to The Tico Times, “Every year on May 1, demonstrators march to the Legislative Assembly in downtown San José to celebrate Labor Day.” Check out their article on this year’s march here.
