Labor Day (US)
The first Monday in September is an annual and national tribute to the contributions that US workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the country.
Labor Day is generally observed with parades, speeches, barbecues, and picnics. The day has also become the unofficial end of the summer season with many colleges, secondary and elementary schools beginning classes immediately after the Labor Day weekend.
