Labor Day – How Will You Celebrate?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor – Labor Day History

The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday — a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families.”

The first proposal, mentioned above, was written well over a hundred years ago in the late 1800’s, and yet the form of observances still resemble how many of America’s workers continue to celebrate the holiday. Parades are still held, and festivals continue; however, much of America’s work force simply see the day as a time to celebrate their hard work by having a day off to enjoy with family and friends at barbeques, picnics, and pool parties. So, we wonder, how will YOU celebrate Labor Day? However you choose to celebrate, remember that the day constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
