Enjoy your holiday weekend!
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday which is observed on the first Monday in September each year. The holiday originated on September 5, 1882, as the Central Labor Union of New York City sought to create a day off work for the working citizens.
Today the people of USA celebrate Labor Day with a little less fanfare than they did at the end of the 19th Century. Some cities hold parades and community picnics. Many politicians “kick off’ their political campaigns by holding rallies on Labor Day. Most Americans consider Labor Day the end of the summer, and the beaches and other popular resort areas are packed with people enjoying one last three-day long weekend.
In addition to Labor Day being a general celebration for the end of summer, there are countless city and state festivals on this long weekend. Many of them involve family-centered activities, water sports, but others will have a focus on American football, since this is when the seasons begin. The NFL holds its first games on this weekend and college football kicks off usually starts this same weekend.
