Labor Day Weekend 2012- Celebrating YOU!

August 31, 2012

Labor Day is only a few days away. Many people celebrate Labor Day each year by enjoying cooking out with friends and family or taking the day to relax. While many people celebrate Labor Day, most don’t know why it’s a holiday or what Labor Day actually stands for. Being the curious Santa’s Elf that I am, I looked into it and found out some interesting things about Labor Day.

According to The United Stated Department of Labor, “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

I knew that as Head Elf of Parent-Elf Relations that I would have Labor Day off. Any Elf working outside of the North Pole gets all Federal Holidays off, including Labor Day. However, I never knew that as one of Santa’s workers, I am one of the contributors the celebration of Labor Day is meant for. In fact, almost everyone is a contributing worker no matter what  industry you work in. Keep up the good work, everyone. Keep doing your best!

History of Labor Day

Some say that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor is the founder of idea of Labor Day, others believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, founded the holiday. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City.  In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday to celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday”. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.

Celebrating Labor Day

Early on the pattern for celebration of Labor Day usually included a street parade followed by a festival for the workers and their families. Later, speeches by prominent men and women were introduced as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday.

Today, forms of celebration include picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events. Labor Day also marks the end of summer for many. Parents with school-age children use this time to take a last minute family vacation before school goes back in session. To others Labor Day is often regarded as a day of rest.

Safety Tips for Labor Day

– If spending this weekend in water-based activities, remember basic water safety rules.  Never swim alone.  Always wear a life jacket or personal flotation device when in any watercraft.

– Remember to use sunblock if you’re going to be out in the sun.

– If using fireworks, always read and follow label directions and have an adult present.

– Be careful driving, many people travel during this holiday and number of accidents increase. Remember to wear your seat belt and follow driving laws. Please no drinking and driving!

I think Elf Bob and I will enjoy this Labor Day weekend skyping with our elf friends in the North Pole. We know they’re all very busy helping with Gifts from Santa and Santa Letters but we’re excited to talk to them about the upcoming Christmas season and everything Santa is preparing. During the Labor Day weekend, we’re thinking of making our favorite Christmas cookies as a snack. We hope that whatever you and your family choose to do this Labor Day, that you have a relaxing and memorable time.

Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!
