Labor Day

Happy Labor Day to all citizens, immigrants and to those with working visa in US. Labor day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday of September, the holiday originated in 1882. On June 24, 1894, Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday. Traditionally most Americans celebrates Labor Day as a symbolic end of summer. The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday, a street parade to exhibit to the public, followed by a festival for the workers and their families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. In most countries like Philippines Labor Day is celebrated on May 1st, although events held by labor organizations often feature political themes and appearances by candidates for office, especially in election years.
