HAPPY LABOR DAY!
Happy Labor Day from 30Fifteen!
We thought we'd honor today's celebration with a quick blog post explaining why we even have Labor Day in the U.S.
Something you might not know...
- U.S. Labor Day was first celebrated on Tuesday September 5, 1882.
- In 1884, the holiday officially declared to occur on the first Monday of September, but it wasn't LEGALLY recognized until 1894, thanks to President Grover Cleveland.
- The holiday is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.
Labor Day is also considered to be the last big weekend of summer, so be sure to get out there and take advantage, even if you're in the U.K.! After all, we all need some rest and relaxation, and there's never a reason not to celebrate! As for us, we're going to head to the beach and later we'll fire up the grill. How will you be celebrating? Leave us a comment! AND HAPPY LABOR DAY!
