LABOR DAY HISTORY

 Labor day is one of those holidays like Columbus Day or President;s Day. You don't really celebrate them, but you have them because it means a day off. It also represents the end of summer. It's the big weekend for the last cook out. Public pools close. We put out white cloths and shoes away and start pulling out our sweaters and boots. What is Labor Day really supposed to be about?? It's a day  to celebrate workers. On September 5, 1882, Union leaders decided to have a labor festival, including a parade. Only a few people showed up on the morning of the 5th, but by the end of the day over 10,000 came and marched in the parade.Oregon was the first state to declare it a holiday in 1887, and it was soon followed by New York. It became an official national holiday in 1896 under President Grover Cleveland.While it's not as talked abut as the Macy's Day Parade , many cities in the country do still have parades on Labor Day, I HOPE YOU HAD A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND A WONDERFUL FALL.
