  • The History of Labor Day

    Most of us view Labor Day as the last real weekend of summer. If they haven't done so already, this is the time when the kids go back to school and fall is about ready to begin. We are also advised not to wear white and soon we will notice the crisp, cool smell of autumn in the air. Labor Day is a popular time for those last out-of-town or camping trips as well but some of you may be wondering -- what exactly is Labor Day? What is it for and when did it begin? On the Charming Chick blog today we will answer some of these question and provide a few fun facts along the way.  

      

     

    Labor Day is observed on the first Monday of September. This holiday is dedicated to the hard-working men and women of our country -- that means YOU! It is a celebration all the social and economic contributions of the American peope. On May 18th, 1882 cabinetmaker Peter McGuire attending a meeting at Central Labor Union and proposed a holiday for all those who labor. The first Labor Day was help on September 5, 1882. However, 1883 few workers were given this holiday off so over 10,000 New York workers showed up to take a stand against employers not willing to recognize the holiday. Actually, at that time it was more of an unoffical holiday though.

     

    In 1887 Oregon was the very first state to recognize Labor Day as a holiday. It didn't become a national holiday until 1894 but by that time 30 states were already officially observing it.  President Grover Cleveland rushed the request to make Labor Day a national holiday through congress -- where it was unanimously approved. The reason they were in such a hurry, had to do with several tragic deaths during heated labor disputes. It was an attempt by President Cleveland prevent further violence from erupting due to labor issues.

     

     

    Labor Day is usually a time for rest, for parties and for just enjoying the extra day off. Did you know that the time between Memorial Day a Labor Day is considered hot dog season? It's true! Labor Day is actually the 3rd most popular holiday for grilling right behind Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.

     

    All of us here and Charming Chick wish you a fun, relaxing and safe Labor Day weekend!!!!! Enjoy!
