Labor Day

So what does Labor Day mean to you?

Most Americans consider it another patriotic holiday but according to Wikipedia it’s actually a celebration of the America labor movement.  “It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.”

Since I’m not gainfully employed, I should probably skip the celebrating.  But I’ll probably hang the American flag in front of the house and get Terry to throw some burgers on the grill to eat with Publix potato salad.  

Although it’s still 92 degrees in Florida, I’ll take a few minutes to pull all of my white shorts and jeans out the closet and pack them away.  Because you’re just not supposed to wear white botoms after Labor Day.  (Just an excuse to rotate the wardrobe until next Memorial Day.)

So what ever it means to you, enjoy your day off, it’s the last national holiday until Columbus day on October 13th and Veterans Day on November 11th–and who actually gets those days off? So your next long weekend is actually Thanksgiving on November 27th.  Sorry to depress you.  But, if you’re like me, everyday is a holiday!

Why do I even get my white pants out in the spring? Not the most flattering style for me!
