Labor Day

Posted by Lindsey on 2 September 2011 | 0 Comments

Labor Day was first celebrated on September 5, 1882 by the Central Labor Union in New York. 12 years later, President Grover Cleveland made it a federal holiday. In America, Labor Day is a day set aside the first Monday in September to celebrate and honor all the men and women who work. It is designated a day to relax... and to party.

To many, Labor Day marks the end of summer. As such, it is traditionally celebrated picnic style with cold drinks and hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Many small towns and big cities in the United States celebrate the holiday with a local parade featuring everybody from local high school bands to political figures. What a great way to kick back, enjoy your friends and family, and relax.

And that's exactly what I plan to do this weekend. How about you?
