BLOG – Happy Labor Day
Well summer is officially coming to an end with Labor Day Weekend. Fall is my favorite season with the warm days and crisps nights. However, I am not in any hurry to have Winter arrive! As you salute the last days of summer with family and friends, here are few links about the history of Labor Day. Surprisingly the first Labor Day was observed in 1887 while Congress didn’t pass a bill to make it official until 1894. I wonder what our farmer ancestors thought…did they take a holiday from chores? Their milk cows may have had a say on what work got done. Enjoy!
