The end of summer holidays is marked with Labour Day. Tomorrow is back to school for Ontario students.

One of my favorite ways to celebrate Labour Day is to also celebrate Read A Book Day.

Today is also the 1st day of Rosh Hashana. So celebrate by casting off last year’s sins, eat new food, wear new clothes and greet everyone with a happy new year.

Holidays and Celebrations:

Cheeseburger Day

1st day of Rosh Hashana (Jewish Observance)

AIDS and Aging Awareness Day – USA

MIA Recognition Day – United States


Cheeseburger Day on a Friday.  Time to celebrate the end of the 1st school week for many.  But don’t celebrate with too many people.

COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions still apply.  Many University of Western Students celebrated too much at large gatherings.  28 university students have been confirmed to have COVID-19 in London Ontario.  The province of Ontario has re-introduced restrictions in some areas (Toronto, Ottawa and Peel) .  Gatherings have been reduced to 10 inside and 25 outside with some exceptions (school, bars, weddings).  Fines have been increased to $10,000 and will be imposed.  We’re being told the 2nd wave is here and to still be cautious, keep your distance and wear a mask.
