Labor Day Lesson
Labor Day is on the first Monday in September. It is an American holiday to honor working people. It was started in 1882 by the Central Labor Union as a day off for the “working man”. Before World War I, Labor Day celebrations often included pro-union demonstrations and parades. Labor Day is a federal holiday, so banks, post offices, schools, most businesses and some stores are closed. The holiday marks the end of summer vacation for many students. Labor Day is celebrated in the United States with parades, picnics, festivals, and sports. It is the symbolic end of summer, which ends on or around September 20.
