Labor Day

Labor Day is a federal U.S. holiday which commemorates the contributions of American labor movements to the prosperity and well-being of the country. It is celebrated annually on the first Monday of September. Labor Day is the American counterpart to the ancient European holiday of May Day held in many countries on the first of May. Though the first Labor Day observed in an American state was in Oregon in 1887, the Day became a statutory holiday throughout the country in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families. But today it is largely a day of rest for most people who are given the opportunity to take a long weekend that ends with Labor Day. Common activities on those days are outdoor ones: picnics, barbecues, and swimming. Many Americans view the long Labor Day weekend as the last chance to have summer fun before the weather gets colder. Labor Day is the end of the summer season, in fact.
Labor Day weekend is traditionally the start of the football season. Most teams play their first games during this period. Besides, national auto races and tennis championships are held.
Though not all, but many school do not begin until the Labor Day holiday is over. Many schools start in beginning of August so the Labor Day long weekend is the first opportunity for pupils to have a break during the school year.
We heartily congratulate you on the Labor Day and wish you a lot of joy, satisfaction and fruits of your labor!
And, of course, have a great time on the Labor Day weekend!
In 2017 Labor Day in USA falls on September 4.
