The Meaning of Labor Day
Something that often gets lost is the true meaning of holidays. We’re all anxious for that day off of school or work, but make sure you stop and pay your respects to the reason behind the holiday.
Labor Day, for example, is observed in the United States and Canada on the first Monday of September to honor working people. The holiday began in the late 1800s as an effort by the Central Labor Union of New York City to create “a day off for the working citizens.” It was designed to celebrate the efforts of workers in the form of a parade and festival for families. Labor unions lobbied state legislatures to establish Labor Day as a legal holiday and, in 1894, it became a national holiday.
Today, Labor Day is celebrated as a day of rest and relaxation—for both working adults and children. So enjoy your day off and find a way to celebrate your family! Various ideas are available online—all you have to do is look!
Whatever you do for the long Labor Day weekend, make it memorable for the kids. And be sure to stop and talk about why the holiday exists in the first place.
