It’s Labor Day Weekend!


<strong>Labor Day </strong>falls on the first Monday in September and is a public U.S. holiday, honoring all the workers in this country and their contribution to society.

<strong>Labor Day</strong> is also considered the unofficial end of summer. 😦

Many school districts begin the school year after Labor Day.

When the holiday was implemented into the U.S. calendar, a street parade followed by a festival honoring the workers was recommended. And, speeches by well-known public figures was also introduced a few years later.

For those of us interested in shopping(!), Labor Day’s Back to School sales have been compared to Black Friday by many retailers.

What are your plans for the Labor Day weekend? Mine will include a barbecue with family and friends, featuring the traditional menu of hot dogs, hamburgers, and fresh fruit…and maybe an apple pie for dessert. 🙂

    Our nephew just bought his first house and wanted to host the Labor Day bbq. We are so excited for him. We are bringing a cooler of beer and water. Plus I made brownies. It should be a fun time.

    Sounds very fun, Pam. Brownies always go well at a bbq. I’m hosting 2 Labor Day get-togethers this weekend and bought cherry and apple pies for dessert. 🙂
