Labor Day… that glorious first Monday of September where people celebrate the work they do 350+ days out of the year. Unofficially the last weekend of summer, Labor Day falls on Monday, September 1st this year. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day originated as the “workingmen’s holiday” in the 1880s when the Industrial Revolution working conditions were not quite what they are today. It seems a bit ironic that on a nationally recognized day off some of us still ‘work’ on the holiday, whether it be home projects or traveling or an extra day of playing catch up or cooking up a storm for a neighborhood potluck. Whatever you do though, have a safe holiday and enjoy your day off!
As always, if we can do anything to better serve you, then please let us know.
