Happy Labor Day

What the heck is Labor Day, for real? Thanks to Wikipedia, here you go:

Labor Day is a United States federal holiday that takes place on the first Monday in September. The holiday began in 1882, originating from a desire by the Central Labor Union to create a day off for the "working man". It is still celebrated mainly as a day of rest and marks the symbolic end of summer for many. Labor Day became a federal holiday by Act of Congress in 1894.

Now go pack away those white capri pants 'till next spring!
