Does anyone really know what Labor Day is for? Did you know when you were a kid but, now that you are an adult it is YEA!! a day off!!? That is generally my theory. I decided to do a little research.
Unlike Memorial Day which is an observance of those men and women who have lost their lives will while serving in the armed forces. Labor Day honors us.
Labor Day: What it Means
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. This comes directly from the United States Dept of Labor.
The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City,
Labor Day is all about us and what we have done for the well-being of our country. Makes you think about it just being a day off a little different, huh?
Tomorrow when the alarm does not go off and you have no pressing place to be……..remember that comes from being a part of a great country.
Enjoy your day with family and friends. Remember all those hard workers that came before us.
