Happy Labor Day weekend to all of Forum Garden's American members and I hope you have a relaxing and fun time as you take a long break from your labors!

About Labor Day:

~~ The Labor Day holiday was created to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of the American workers.
~~ Labor Day stems from the labor movements in the 19th century as workers protested long hours, little pay, and young children being forced to work.
~~ The first Labor Day was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882.
~~ In 1884, Labor Day was moved to the first Monday in September.
~~ Labor Day was made a Federal holiday in 1894.

I still think of Labor Day primarily as a long weekend marking the end of summer vacation! And a seasonal reminder that it was no longer fashionably acceptable to wear white ... heaven forbid!
