Labor day – Parades, Parties and put away your whites!
So for this blog I did some researching to honor this long time American tradition.
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887.
The September date was originally chosen by the CLU of New York.
So here is what happens on all American Labor Day.
- Labor day street parades and family cook outs
- Families coming together with neighbors
- A day free of work for many
- The fair comes to town
- The last summer party before going back to school
- Marks the end of summer
And for all women of fashion pack away your whites until next year.
Thanks to the following for the inspiring the idea for this blog.
