Happy Labor Day

American Flag in the shape of Letters spelling HAPPY Labor Day

 

Labor Day is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It was created to recognize all the contributions American workers made to the strength, prosperity, laws, and well-being of the country. 

 

For many of us, Labor Day is a celebration of the unofficial end of summer.

Here are a few fun facts about Labor Day:

  •  The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in Union Square, New York City.  
  • The top grossing movie opening on Labor Day Weekend was Halloween in 2007.
  • Labor Day is considered the end of hot dog season. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council state that Americans consume 7 billion hot dogs from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
  • Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day an official holiday in 1887.
  • 25 percent of Americans will travel out of town for Labor Day weekend, 86 percent by car, and seven percent by plane.
