Fun facts about Labor Day:
Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. This year, the first official day of the NFL and college football seasons will be celebrated on the same day. Labor Day also marks the unofficial end of summer and is the last holiday of the season.
Labor Day was made an official holiday in June 1894 by President Cleveland and the U.S. Congress. Labor Day was originally intended to celebrate the strength and contributions of the many labor associations in the United States. In many areas of the country, it was tradition to celebrate with parades and festivals in honor of the workers and their families and speeches were given by prominently well-known men and women.
Today, Labor Day is one of the biggest sales holidays for retailers next to Black Friday. And, like the old saying goes, don’t wear white after Labor Day!
