This weekend marks Labor Day weekend 2008. And of course Labor Day falls on Monday, September 1st, 2008.
Labor Day is a US holiday that is federally recognized. It falls on the first Monday of September each year.
Symbolically speaking, Labor Day marks the end of the summer much like Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer.
Labor Day got its start back in 1882 as day off for the working people. And in 1894 it became recognized as a federal holiday.
