Labor Day has been recognized as a National Holiday since 1887, celebrating the contribution that workers made toward the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. It is celebrated on the First Monday in September and is "dedicated to the social and economic contributions of American workers". Most often, family and friends celebrate this day by coming together in good will, grilling hamburgers/hot dogs, enjoying a relaxing day outdoors, kicking back and watching sports on TV, going to a hometown parade, and more.
Labor Day is also a reminder that Summer is coming to a close and Fall is closely upon us. Children are back in school, the heat of summer is lessening, the leaves will begin changing, and our hearts and minds will begin gearing up for all the wonders that come with Fall. This is truly one of my favorite times of the year!
For all my Southern Traditions Home family and friends, we salute you for your hard work and dedication. Have a safe and Happy Labor Day!
