Tommorow is Labor day, and so I was wondering,"What is Labor Day? Why do we celebrate it?" Well, the Central Labor Union started the first event as a demonstration. It was supposed to be a holiday that celebrated the working person, and his/ her contributions to the world. It was started in 1883 (or 1882- different books and websites said different things!)in New York, and it wasn't long before other states celebrated it.Tommorow is also my Dad's birthday! HappyBirthday,Dad!
