The month of September is a month of transition for many Americans.
Generally recognized as the end of the summer travel season, early September marks the beginning of NFL and college football seasons, the start of the school year, and for some, the last opportunity to sport white clothing. Most of these traditions are centered around the final major holiday of summer, Labor Day.
With its origins dating back to the 19th century, Labor Day is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
Once celebrated with parades and speeches, Labor Day is now observed with picnics and family gatherings as many Americans take advantage of a long weekend. Wherever your travels take you this holiday, take a moment to reflect upon the contributions made by workers that have helped to shape our country and continue to keep it strong.
