Happy Labor Day - a Day of Rest or More Work Than you Have Done in the Past Six Months on the Honey Do's List

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward


How do you celebrate your Labor Day OR your Labor Day Weekend?

In years past Labor Day signals the end of summer and the beginning of fall and the beginning of school. Fall is still coming soon but now schools start and end at many different times (starting in July or August & some September / ending in May or June)  Labor Day for the most part is just another holiday. It signifies the end of summer but does it.......  white was put on the shelves and back to fall colors, but that is starting to change and some wear white year around.  (goody!!)


Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States, It gives workers a day of rest and celebrates their contributions to the American economy, It us annually held on the first Monday of September. As I've already said, many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer and a last chance to make trips or hold outdoor events,

The first Labor Day was held in 1882 Its origins stem from the desire of the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers, It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade followed by a festival - all to amuse, celebrate & appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations, the workers and their families, This is less common now but it is a day of rest for most.

One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving............    information from
