Labor Day in the USA is celebrated every year on the first Monday in September. It honors the contributions that U.S. workers have made to the development, growth, endurance, strength, security, prosperity, productivity, and well-being of the country.Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894, at which it was already officially celebrated by 30 U.S. states. Since it is a federal holiday, government offices, such as the US Postal Service, are closed along with banks. Labor Day is also considered as the unofficial end of summer with the start of the school year. Typically in some neighborhoods, people participate in parades, fireworks displays, and have barbecues over the long weekend. The American football season begins during the weekend too. During these unprecedented times, this year's activities may be different.Here are some of our favorite ideas on how you and your families can have fun during the holiday weekend:
- Set up a video party - catch up virtually with your friends and family
- Get your exercise on - while maintaining proper social distancing
- Relax - read a book, watch TV, cook, bake, learn a new hobby
