Happy Labor Day USA!

Today is Labor Day in the United States which is always celebrated on the first Monday in September. It was created to celebrate the American labor movement. It was first proposed in 1882 and became a federal holday in 1894.

Originally it was intended to take the form like that of the Fête du Travail as in France with parades and worker demonstrations. However overtime, it has become a day for picnics, barbecues, and sports.

In many states, it's the first long weekend and day off from school for those states that start the school year early in August. For other states, it's the official end of summer with school starting the next day.
