Greetings, New Neighbourhood

Seriously, who even knew that people celebrated Labour Day?

I mean, I know about the classic kind of celebration as in, "Hey Sunday's like a Friday now--let's get trashed and cause a ruckus!"

But I had no clue that Labour Day would result in a 3 hour long, "Whooo, we're workers!" parade, complete with tin pan drums, marching bands, and continuous loud music.

I also had no clue that this would happen right in front of my house, in the morning, while I was trying to sleep. I guess it's just a good thing that I didn't classically celebrate Labour Day last night.

    hahaha at least you don't have a window looking directly on to Queen St.

    It was quite a shocker in first year when I woke up to that. lol

    And I think there might be one more parade as well..
    I just don't remember what day it is.. it's like some sort of union parade.

    Dumb workers. Give them a day off and they just go have a parade celebrating the fact that they're not working.

    How about going to the lake??
