Take a Break–it’s Labor Day!

Labor Day is annually held on the first Monday of September (this year, September 2nd). It was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations’ strengths of and contributions to the United States economy. It is largely a day of rest in modern times. Many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer season and a last chance to make trips or hold outdoor events.

Labor Day is a US holiday dedicated to workers across the country. The public holiday always falls on the first Monday in September. The first federal observation of the holiday occurred in 1894 however the first Labor Day observed in a state was in Oregon in 1887.

Remember our American warriors today who never get a day off. Their job is always critical.


  1. This is one year I’m glad not to be part of the labor force!


    • We bloggers never get a day off either, do we? Today, I’ll be blogging and writing my next fiction. It should be a great day! If the California heat stays below 115!

      • We’ve actually cooled down a tad here in south FL, but that’s only because we’ve been overcast. I’m hoping for an cold winter, like when I first came down here and it would actually go down to the 30’s.
