Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September, that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. It was first nationally recognized in 1894 to placate unionists following the Pullman Strike. With the decline in union membership, the holiday is generally viewed as a time for barbeques and the end of summer vacations.
My daughter started back to school a few weeks ago, but for Connor today is, indeed, the last day of summer vacation. We'll be enjoying the pool one last time, grilling hot dogs, and wearing all our white before the fashion police come after us tomorrow.
Go Teen Writers will be open again tomorrow!
