Labor Day, Monday, September 1, 2014

USA Federal Holidays, "Labor Day, Monday, September 1, 2014".
Happy Labor Day, we've all earned it

"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."
