Happy Labor Day Edmonson County! For those of you that have today off, we hope you enjoy your day doing whatever it is you choose. Have you ever wondered why there's a holiday that gives most of the full time workforce the day off while calling it Labor Day? Shouldn't it be called "Day Off Day?"
Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September of each year. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
For most, it symbolizes the end the summer and the beginning of fall activities. An older tradition not used much anymore (for you members of the fashion police) is that Labor Day is also the last day to wear white or seersucker.
If you're like most of us here at the Edmonson Voice, wearing white is not a good idea on Labor Day because mustard stains are hard to get out. (BBQ sauce, too.) So, enjoy your day, and thanks for reading. We've got tons of great stuff headed your way this week.
