Today is Labor Day! Every year on the first Monday of
September, our nation celebrates the contributions American workers have
made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
In 1882, New York City held the first "workingman's holiday,"
complete with a parade of 10,000 workers. Over the next few years, Labor
Day celebrations spread across the country. In 1894, Congress passed an
act that made Labor Day an official national holiday.
Today, many Americans view Labor Day as the unofficial end to summer.
Celebrate with cookouts, parades, or a weekend getaway. You can also
send free Labor Day eCards to family and friends. Happy Labor Day!
We're spending Labor Day relaxing at home.
We did not do anything really...no bbq this time.
