September International Holidays 2018

To many Americans, Labor Day marks the unofficial end of Summer. Kids go back to school and the summer vacation season comes to an end. Labor Day is a celebration of the labor movement in the US and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. Labor Day became an official federal holiday in 1894, and it is often celebrated with barbecues, travel, and shopping for back-to-school supplies. No matter how you celebrate, we wish you a Happy Labor Day weekend.
