Happy Labor Day!

Email  Print Print  

US Flag Hard HatI want to wish everyone a happy Labor Day! I hope you’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with friends and family, away from the rush of work or the concerns of money, and really enjoy the important things in life.

I did a little research on the origins of Labor Day and according to Wikipedia the holiday originated in Canada. The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated in 1882 in New York City. It wasn’t a federal holiday until after the 1894 Pullman Strike, but ever since then it’s been celebrated on the first Monday in September.

Either way, it’s shaping up to be a gorgeous day in many parts of the country so get out and enjoy the day off!
