Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September in the United States to honor the American labor movement and the contributions that working people have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. The rest of the world celebrates labor day on May 1 every year, it is also known as international labor day.
So when was the first labor day holiday celebrated?
The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. Subsequently, the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a the holiday that celebrates workers on that date. The idea caught on as labor organizations grew and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.
Today, it has just become a day to have fun with friends and family and to give a final reluctant send off to summer. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend, everyone!
