Labor day – Parades, Parties and put away your whites!


In my blogs I talk much about culture and tradition and what makes us who we are!

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.

  1. Labor day street parades and family cook outs
  2. Families coming together with neighbors
  3. A day free of work for many
  4. The fair comes to town
  5. The last summer party before going back to school
  6. 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.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
