Labor Thanksgiving Day

What do you get when you combine Labor Day + Harvest Day + Thanksgiving Day? You get Kinro kansha no hi (勤労感謝の日 / Labor Thanksgiving Day), which is celebrated on November 23rd annually.

The Japanese national holiday was originally a harvest festival known as Niinamesai (新嘗祭). Nowadays, it was established as Labor Thanksgiving Day – a day to show gratitude to any working person, thanking them for their diligence and laborious efforts.

Kinro Kansha no hiI did an Etegami (Picture Postcard) for the “Labor Thanksgiving Day.”

My gratitude to you, you who is always doing your best at your job.
Well done (and thank you for your hard work).
