Labor Day is Monday, September 5th. To many folks, Labor Day marks the end of the hot summer season. Many see this 3 day weekend as their last chance to get out and take a vacation before summer is gone. The kids have already gone back to school, for the most part, but get to enjoy one last hurrah at the beach before the levels of homework get too intense and for the Northern climates, it’s going to start getting cold!

Meaning of Labor Day

Labor Day is observed in the U.S. on every first Monday in September as a day to recognize the contributions of American workers of all industries to the U.S. economy. It is also meant to give workers a well-earned day off to relax at home or to get out for recreation. “It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country,” the Labor Department said in its history of the holiday.
