Prolétaire: The Labor Day observed on 1st May in France is actually the amalgam of several holidays established in the 19th century to celebrate workers (the proletariat). In 1889, in honour of the centennial of the French Revolution, 1st May became associated with labour's fight to obtain an eight-hour workday In early 20th century Paris, seamstresses gave three sprigs of lily of the valley to their workers and little helpers, but we will have to wait until 1976 to celebrate this day on 1st May

About Cire Trudon:
The oldest candle maker in the world began in 1643 when Claude Trudon became the owner of a boutique on the rue Saint Honoré where he developed his activity as a grocer and candler  His candles were purchased to light parishes and homes  Thus, in the early days of Louis the 14th’s reign, Claude Trudon created a manufacturing company that would make his family’s fortune  Cire Trudon supplied Versailles up to the last days of the Ancient Regime and in 1811 supplied Napoleon and his imperial court
