Labor Day is quite literally just around the corner. First things first, let's learn about WHY exactly we celebrate on this day. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.
Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, which begs the question, "Do we even know what season or time is anymore?"
That being said, am I the only one who is feeling lost on what to do this weekend? Well, we put our heads together and found a couple of fun ideas to pass the time. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your labor-free, labor day!
