Labor Day


Labor:

productive activity, especially for the sake of 

economic gain; the body of persons engaged 


in such activity, especially those working for 

wages; this body of persons considered as a 

class (distinguished from management and 

capital); physical or mental work, especially 

of a hard or fatiguing kind; toil; a job or task 

done or to be done.



Labor Day was created to honor the American 

Labor movement.  Since 1887, it has been 

celebrated on the first Monday in September.


Labor Day marks the unofficial end to summer, 

but around here, the temperature appears to   

be in denial. Still, if you are a proper Southern 

lady, you need to put away those white sandals 

and slacks today.


For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands: 

happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with 

thee.

~Psalm 128:2
