Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend, and it is considered the unofficial end of summer in the United States. The holiday is also a federal holiday.
The holiday is regarded as a day of rest and celebration. Speeches or political demonstrations are more low-key than May 1 Labor Day celebrations in most countries. Our celebrations include picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events. Families with school-age children see it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer recess.
