Happy Labor Day

So until I really thought to look up Labor Day, I didn't really care about it.
I mean it was just another day off to me.
I was sitting at work one day and found myself wondering if I was supposed to wear red, white and blue for the day.
Not that I ever dress in the coordinating holiday colors.
Ever.
Sorry, most of the time I forget.

Anyway.

My lovely readers who happen to be teachers; ignore what is to come.

I looked Labor Day up on Wikipedia.
(I know, I know)
This is what the mystical Wikipedia has to say about it.


  • Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 3 in 2012) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
  • Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887
  •  It became a federal holiday in 1894
  • The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations",[1]followed by a festival for the workers and their families
  • The holiday is often regarded as a day of rest and parties
  • Forms of celebration include picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events. 
  • Families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer recess. Similarly, some teenagers and young adults view it as the last weekend for parties before returning to school, although school starting times now vary.
  • Labor Day marks the beginning of the NFL and college football seasons
Um excuse me, that did not answer my question..
Sheesh!

I guess I'll just wear whatever I want.
Again.

Happy Labor Day, Loves!!
