I’m Taking Labor Day Off

I am taking Labor Day off. It is a holiday here in the U.S.

According to Wikipedia, Labor Day celebrates the economic and social contribution of workers. The first Labor Day was observed on September 5, 1882. It ultimately became a federal holiday in 1894.

Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In fact, when I was a boy, school didn’t start until after the holiday. Those were the days!

Enjoy the time with your family and friends.

  1. Have a great holi-day Michael – you’ve certainly earned it with your personal economic and social contribution!

    The end of summer.. oh man.. can’t believe how fast time passes..  :-)

    • My thoughts exactly here in South America. Completely forgot. Agreed as well on the “laboring” part. Work is much less “work” when its something you enjoy doing. 

  2. I called various people in the United States at their work numbers today and couldn’t figure out why no one was accesible until I called a friend on his cell phone. Amazing how quickly we forget the holidays of our home country when we’re living abroad. I can’t say I ever had the privilege of starting anything after Labor Day. However, I’m glad September marks the beginning of Spring in South America.

    Thanks for modeling the importance of rest and taking time out for family. 

  3. I’m spending today re-reading your e-book about creating a life plan and have written it out for myself. Thank you for doing this! It’s great. I’m about to send the link to it to another friend.

    God bless, Anne Marie :)

  4. Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day off! I had it off and it was nice as it added a freebie day to my vacation.

    BTW, the kids in Michigan’s public schools don’t start school until after Labor Day due to a state law. Lucky kids.
