Labor Day is Monday, September 5th!
Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day celebrates the
contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by
the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday
in 1894. Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many
Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.
