About Labor Day

What is Labor Day?

Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States.

When is Labor Day?

Labor Day in the USA is the always the first weekend in September. A lot of countries around the world celebrate Labor Day in May. However, due to the long gap in the American calendar between Independence Day and Thanksgiving, the USA chose to move the holiday to a more appropriate day.

Why do we celebrate Labor Day?

The idea of the holiday weekend is to allow workers a much needed day off while the country celebrates their contribution to the American economy.

When was the first Labor Day Weekend?

The very first Labor Day weekend was held in 1882, and the event became a federal holiday just over a decade later. Labor Day was originally meant to be a parade to showcase the work of trade and labor organisations to the public. Then, there would be a party with speeches and festivities. Nowadays, many people take the long weekend as their last opportunity to go away before summer ends and kids go back to school.
