Happy Labor Day! The first Monday of September is here and we get to enjoy a long weekend before heading back to work on Tuesday. In order to get your holiday started off on the right foot, we have some information and tips that will make your celebration a success.
After all, we know you’re probably either hosting or attending a barbecue and some ice cold adult beverages being ending your weekend.
Oh, and remember, try not to get too frustrated by the traffic.
Let’s get started.
What is Labor Day?
Labor Day is a public holiday in the United States that takes place on the first Monday of September. This year’s holiday falls on Sept. 4, while Labor Day 2018 will take place on Sept. 3.
The holiday is known as the unofficial end to the summer. But the official reason for the hiliday is to honor the American labor movement and contributions workers have made to the “strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.”
Since Labor Day is a federal holiday, a number of people across the country will have off work. That leads to a long weekend of relaxation, enjoying the company of family and friends, and grilling out one final time before fall and winter come around.
Are Banks Open On Labor Day?
Because Labor Day is a federal holiday, banks, libraries, schools, courts, state offices, the stock market and post offices will all be closed.
Retail and grocery stores will be open, however, and you can find some good deals if you make the journey outside of your picnic area or swimming pool.
