No school. No work. Yes, it’s the Labor Day holiday. Time for that end-of-summer fling whether it’s in the mountains, the beaches or just in the backyard with family, friends, a grill and even fireworks.
Monday, Sept. 3, is a federal holiday that celebrates the contributions of America’s workers. Schools are closed, as well as government offices, banks and other businesses.
The origin of summer’s final holiday dates back 130 years.
The first U.S. Labor Day was celebrated on Sept. 5, 1882 in New York City.
