Did you know that the first Labor Day was held celebrated in New York City on September 5, 1882 and was started by the Central Labor Union in New York City. In 1884, it was moved to the first Monday in September where it is celebrated today. Labor Day quickly became popular and one state after another voted it as a holiday. On June 28, 1894, the U.S. congress voted it a national holiday.
Labor Day is also viewed as the official end of summer. While the Fall Equinox is still a couple of weeks away, kids go back to school and summer vacations are over. So this marks the end of the season. Many people celebrate this weekend with one last picnic. It is also the date that many people close up the pool, and put away the boats.
What do you like to do celebrate Labor Day? Just relax and enjoy a day to sleep in? Or like many of the people in my office, have a day to catch up on house or lawn work? However you choose to spend your day - ENJOY IT! HAPPY LABOR DAY (WEEKEND)!
