Labor Day {the first Monday in September} celebrates the contributions American workers have made to our wonderful country. It all began on September 5th, 1882 when ten thousand workers paraded through New York City in support of changing the current 12 hour work day to a shorter eight hours. We have no idea how hard our ancestors worked to build this great country – without their sweat and tears we wouldn’t be bbq-ing today and working 8 hours tomorrow! Whether you are celebrating our hard working nation, or the last weekend of summer… I wish you the best.
