Observed on the first Monday in September
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers.
Created by the labor movement of the late 19th century
the date became a federal holiday in 1894.
On June 28, 1894,
Congress passed an act
making the first Monday in September
of each year
a legal holiday
in the District of Columbia
and the territories.
President Grover Cleveland signed the act.
Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans
as the symbolic end of summer
and the start of back to school season.
We'll be home Labor Day
with the smoker going
And family and friends gathering
It is the last weekend of summer
And we always welcome
with open arms.
We, at Linderhof,
hope you and yours
has a Happy Labor Day
I never knew about this day before in U.S. thank for sharing a little bit of the history. I love history as well :)
