Labor Day
Labor Day was designated a holiday in 1894 by Grover Cleveland.  It is called Labor Day because it is a day when we recognize working people or people who labor..  It is held on the first Monday in September.  Schools are out on Labor Day.  Parades are sometimes held in big cities but generally it has become a day to mark the end of summer.  Many people go to the lake one last time and other people put storm doors on their homes because they know fall is coming soon and days will be cooler..  Picnics are also popular on this day.
