Celebrating Labor day in Branson
Posted on August 3rd, 2011
History of Labor Day
Labor Day was originally created by the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It celebrates the countless hours Americans have devoted to the strength and prosperity of our great Nation.
The first Labor Day was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. The next year it was again celebrated on September 5th, but in 1884 it was decided that the first Monday in September would become the official day of celebration, giving many workers the beloved 3-day weekend!
Bring on the Celebration!
