Date: Monday, 2 September, 2024       Time: All Day

Labor Day is a federal holiday celebrated in the United States on the first Monday of September each year. It is a day dedicated to honoring and recognizing the contributions and achievements of American workers and the labor movement.

The holiday's origins can be traced back to the late 19th century when labor unions and workers' rights advocates fought for improved working conditions, fair wages, and reasonable working hours. One significant event that led to the establishment of Labor Day was the labor unrest and strike that took place in the late 1800s, culminating in the Haymarket affair in Chicago in 1886.

On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making Labor Day an official federal holiday. The intention was to create a national day of rest and celebrate the social and economic contributions of workers to the nation's prosperity.

Today, Labor Day is observed as a day of relaxation and enjoyment for many Americans. It marks the unofficial end of summer and is often associated with parades, picnics, barbecues, family gatherings, and recreational activities. Many businesses and government offices are closed on this day, allowing people to spend time with their families and enjoy a long weekend before the start of the fall season.

Additionally, Labor Day also symbolizes the importance of workers' rights and serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggles and achievements of the labor movement in the United States.

To ensure a more seamless journey with reduced expenses and fewer crowds, remember to arrange and commence your trip ahead of time, as holidays often bring about a surge in travelers and elevated hotel rates.
