Today is Labor Day. According to History.com, this holiday is….
“…observed on the first Monday in September. It pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.”
As the unofficial end of summer, with rain in the forecast and school starting tomorrow, I am certainly feeling closure.
So here we go – right back to it, whether we like it or not. In honor of this Labor Day holiday, I’ll keep this post short and sweet. In honor of the crazy, back to school week ahead, the blog will be on break until next Monday, the 12th.
However you choose to spend it, enjoy this Labor Day Holiday, today, and the last moments of summer.
Happy Labor Day!
See you in a week.
