What holiday is today?
Holiday 23: Labor Day in Jamaica
For the first time Labor Day in Jamaica was celebrated in 1939. Jamaica is known to be an extraordinarily beautiful island.
However, at a certain point he was in a depressed state, which was promoted by human activity. The need to eliminate the problems associated with the repair of police stations, schools, hospitals, to restore economic growth rates — these and other tasks were set before the introduction of Labor Day.
Today there is a tradition — the people of Jamaica are exactly 23 who work for free for the benefit of society. Of course, all this happens by mutual agreement, and every year there are fewer people willing to work hard on a voluntary basis.
But still, adherents of this approach to the celebration still remain, and this means that 22 good deeds will be more.

Holiday 23: St. Apostle Simon Kanahit’s Day in Abkhazia
23 in Abkhazia celebrate the Day of St. Apostle Simon the Canaanite. For many Christian Abkhazians this holiday is filled with a special meaning.
Simon Kananit was one of those apostles who preached directly in Abkhazia. Also here lie his relics.
A temple was built at the burial site of the preacher in the 9th-10th centuries.
This is the patronal feast of the Novy Afon monastery, and it is one of the most important in the Abkhaz church. According to legends, being a wedding guest, the apostle Simon in the cannon of Galilee was able to see the first miracle — the apostle turned water into wine.
After that, Simon decided to renounce worldly life. He preached for a long time in Abkhazia and performed a large number of miracles, which made it possible to convert many Abkhazians to faith.
It is also known that Simon was persecuted. In the end, as a result of persecution, which was organized by the Georgian king Aderky, Simon was subjected to agony, after which he died and was buried on the shore of Psyrtsha near the cave in which he lived.
