As we head into the Labor Day Weekend, I’m struck by two somewhat opposing thought processes. For some, it seems that Labor Day signals a BEGINNING of sorts. Granted, many schools and colleges have just gone back into session or will begin the day after Labor Day. Some look at it as a time to buckle down at work, after some lazy summer days, and many consider it the unofficial start of fall.
Still others approach it maybe as a “last hurrah”. A weekend at the beach soaking up some of those last summer rays, or taking the kids camping, or a theme park before they find themselves in a classroom for 8 hours a day. Family picnics abound, as one of the last get-togethers before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
However you choose to approach it, I’m reminded of the significance of Labor Day. It began in New York City as a means to salute the work force and all those who labored to build the infrastructure, transportation and factories in the city and in the United States. Declared a National Day of Observance by Congress in 1894, the celebration has been recognized unwaveringly since that time.
And while things have changed drastically in the 100+ years since then, I think now is the BEST time to re-commit our recognition to all those who are still working effortlessly to build a strong, successful, sustainable country for us to call home.
While the wedding season has expanded over the years to include all 12 months as options for your big day, spring and summer are still a popular time of year to say “I Do!” Something about the flowers, the warm air and new beginnings still make me think of this as the start of wedding season.
