History of Labor Day

Happy Labor Day weekend to you all! Do you know why we celebrate Labor Day? It’s quite an interesting history. Labor Day is the celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. In the year of 1894, Labor Day was passed as a national holiday by Congress to be celebrated on the first monday of September. It is argued whether Peter McGuire or Matthew Maguire had invented this special holiday, but one thing can be certain…it’s a holiday that all hard-working Americans deserve! The holiday has evolved now into a great celebration with barbecue, family, friends, beer and fun! So enjoy your holiday weekend!
