Labor Day in the United Sates is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday of September.
It honors the American labor movement and their contributions toward the economic well being of the country. It was initiated by the Central Labor Union in New York in 1882. The United States Congress unanimously voted Labor Day as a national holiday in 1894.
The holiday traditionally marks the end of the summer season (although summer officially ends in September 21) when students return to school. Labor Day marks the beginning of the season for National Football League, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Other significant events include the Southern 500 NASCAR auto race, finals for Indianapolis Raceway Park, National Hot Rod Association at the U.S.Nationals drag race. The U.S. Open Tennis Championships will also be opened in flushing Meadows, New York, after Labor Day.
Pools will be closing and when that happens, you know, summer is over!
