Labor Day 2012

Labor Day became a federal holiday in the US in 1894. The holiday celebrates the American Worker and his (or her) contributions to the economic success of this country. Initially, Labor Day was celebrated with parades to “exhibit to the public ‘the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations’.” The parades were followed by street festivals to honor the workers. Many cities and towns continue to hold parades and organized gatherings each year. Other individuals use the three-day weekend to celebrate with friends and family by having their own cook-outs.
