Labor Day is Coming Up!
The first Monday of September marks the end of summer (kind of). It’s Labor Day weekend, and everyone will be taking advantage of their last chance to cookout or to go somewhere for a few days.
Labor Day has been a recognized holiday since 1882 (legal, federal holiday since 1894) and celebrates the working people of the United States. People are encouraged to take the day off to rest and just have fun for a well-deserved break.
Other traditions of the holiday include barbeques and store sales. I can only imagine what this year’s sales will look like; I bet they will be great! Just the other day I saw a store with a “Staying in Business” sale where all their merchandise was 65-75% off. Just imagine what their Labor Day sale will be like!
Another good thing about Labor Day is that it’s a sign that the NFL season is starting again. Traditionally, the first game of the season is the Thursday after Labor Day. Of course, this also means that school will be starting again…but that’s okay, school is good for you! At least there will be football games to look forward to, right?
Enjoy the long weekend!
