Labor Day Weekend Getaway Plans
Ah, Labor Day, a day that should be filled with love, friends, and family. Did you know that 66% of Americans barbeque on Labor Day Weekend? That’s a lot of delicious food!
So, what is Labor Day, and why do we celebrate it?
Labor Day in America is a celebration for all the contributions the working Americans have made towards the well-being and prosperity of the United States and its economy.
The very first Labor Day observance was held in New York on September 5, 1882. Over 20,000 members of the American workforce took the day off of work without pay and marched through the New York City streets to show support for all unions. As a ripple effect, by 1887, Oregon, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Colorado made Labor Day a state holiday. By June of 1894, Congress passed a bill that established the first Monday in September as Labor Day, making it a National holiday.
So, when is Labor Day Weekend in 2019?
This year, Labor Day is on September 2nd, which means that all the Labor Day festivities will be held on August 30th – September 2nd.
