Why we celebrate Labor Day is pretty simple and is to honor the American workers who put their all into their work. The holiday has been celebrated for well over a century and first came to be a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day falls on the first Monday in September and is not only a reason to celebrate those who are working hard, but it is also a way to mark the end of summer.

Labor Day was created by labor unions in New York City. They took a day back in the late 1800s to celebrate those in various unions, and they even had a parade for them. Over one hundred years later, people still put on parades for labor day. It is one of the more patriotic holidays, and people celebrate by getting dressed up in red, white, and blue, and having parties, grilling out, and enjoying the day with friends and family.
