    @Liz Song I looked up the phrases origins for you! “It originally came from the expression “call it half a day” first seen in 1838. This was when it was common for workers to temporarily finish work, go home for lunch and then return to complete their tasks. It was used to say goodbye to work by employees before the working day was over.”
