Happy Labor Day!

tech job 2

Labor Day is a two-fold celebration: 

1.  The end of summer.

2.  A day off from work.

It was made a Federal holiday in 1894, but was celebrated as early as 1882 in New York City. Canada also recognizes Labor Day on the first Monday of September.

Unlike other holidays, its only purpose is to honor the average working Joe and Jane for their contributions to the nation. I found this link at Office that gives the history in more detail.

So, to my many hard-working friends, whether you're a writer or in some other occupation, rest from your labors and have a Happy Labor Day.

Writers and Readers: How do you celebrate Labor Day? Please share.

Susan; Due to some health issues of my hubby, we just relax and enjoy the day. We will have a favorite summer holiday supper (hot dogs) and a summer dessert (watermelon). This is a busy week for me. I will try to write as I can today and when I can the rest of the week.
