What is Labor Day?
Always held on the first Monday in September, Labor Day was the idea of Peter J. Maguire (although recent research has shown that it might have been his brother Matthew’s idea), a labor union leader who in 1882 proposed a celebration honoring the American worker.
The date chosen was simply “convenient,” according to Maguire, because it was midway between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving.
Thank you to all of the hard workers. We appreciate you!
Happy Independence Day America!
I work for a Brit, so this is also appropriate for today! 😉
Hope you all have a fantastic day and enjoy celebrating with your family and friends.
I’ll be back on Monday! 🙂
Happy Memorial Day!
Today isn’t about picnics, yard work, and being outside. It’s about remembering all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the country.
Today, I remember my Grandpa. While we didn’t lose him in combat, he did serve in WWII and proudly wore his veteran’s hat for many years.
He and so many others are a great example of serving your country.
We miss him and feel grateful for his sacrifice.
Dyngus Day is a Polish and Polish-American holiday observed the day after Easter Sunday and celebrating the end of lent. … The word “Dyngus” is sometimes also spelled “Dingus” and loosely means worthy, proper or suitable. 2. Dyngus Day dates back to the baptism of Prince Mieszko I on Easter Monday in 966 A.D.
Hope you guys had a great Easter Sunday with your family and friends. We definitely did!
Today we’re off relaxing from the crazy weekend and celebrating Dyngus Day!
I thought everybody celebrated today and then I moved out of Buffalo and realized everybody doesn’t wear red today. lol
Today’s the biggest shopping day of the year!
And I’m totally not doing it.
I can’t stand the crowds – the pushing and shoving and “un” holiday like spirit for a tv.
No thank you.
Instead, I’m visiting some friends I haven’t seen in a long time and hanging out with my family.
I’m pretty excited to sit by a fire in a cozy coffee shop drinking a peppermint hot chocolate with some of my besties.
The Hubster is freezing his you know what off in a tree stand.
Have a great weekend!
Hope you and your family have a great day!
Wishing you all a Happy Independence Day!
Hope you all enjoy the day with your families and friends.
And most importantly celebrate our freedom.
Remembering today all those who served and protected this great country.
I hope you all celebrated Jesus’s Resurrection yesterday with your loved ones.
This was pretty much me yesterday, so I’m trying to lower my blood sugar to normal levels and get back to work today.
See you tomorrow for a Target Tuesday!
The Easter Bunny will be here before we know it (I can’t believe that Easter is only a few weeks away!). While it doesn’t really feel like spring yet, I figure that I should at least be on the lookout for a cute Easter dress!
