What does Labor Day mean to you?

labor dayEvery year, Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. Here is the definition of Labor Day, as shared by the United States Department of Labor:

“Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

Labor Day was first celebrated in 1885, and continues to grow in popularity with each passing year. Not only is it a time to celebrate the well-being of the United States, but it is a day off work for most. Furthermore, it is a time for family and friends to get-together for a good time.

While Labor Day means something different to everybody, for many it signifies one or more of the following:

· Traditional end of summer. The fall season may not be here just yet, but it is only a few weeks away.

· Fall estate sale season. Once Labor Day comes and goes, the fall estate sale season begins to heat up.

· Football season. From college to NFL, you can expect football season to kickoff in full force during the first couple weeks of September.

· School is here. While most students go back to school before Labor Day, it isn’t until after this holiday that it really sets in.

· Cooler weather. Depending on where you live, it won’t be long before warm weather gives way to cooler air.

With Labor Day almost here, it is time to think about what this means to you.

Do you have any big plans for the long weekend? Are you going to spend it with friends and family? Are you ready for what the fall season will bring?
