  Labor Day -
September 2nd

Dedicated in honor of the worker, Labor Day is also appropriately called the "workingman's holiday". The holiday is dedicated to you in respect and appreciation for the work you do in or outside of the home, union or non-union, big company, small companies, or government. As long as you work somewhere at something, this holiday is for you! The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City on September 5, 1882 and was started by the Central Labor Union. In 1884, it was moved to the first Monday in September where it is celebrated today. Labor Day quickly became popular and one state after another voted it as a holiday. On June 28, 1894, the U.S. congress voted it a national holiday.
