It’s Labor Day weekend!
So you’re probably relishing in the final days of summer with a glass of Rose and a list of promo codes for the incredible sales going on this weekend. Or you’re out tanning on the beach one last time with your friends and having a beer. Or you’re spending the day sleeping and caching up on all of your TV shows. Or if you work in the service or retail industry, you’re probably waking up for work just like any other Monday (sorry guys!)
But why do we even celebrate labor day?
To pay a tribute to working men and women of course! And no, it’s not the same thing as Memorial Day.
The holiday was established back in 1894 and has been a national holiday in the United States and Canada since then. It’s a celebration of the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and growth of our country. See, it’s not just the unofficial end to summer and the end of wearing white jeans.
So now while you’re lounging on the beach one last time, you’ll feel even more relaxed because you deserve that day off (and those boots your debating spending your life savings on sale at Lord & Taylor!)
