take a rest today...





Labor Day

Labor Day is a day of rest or the last chance for many people to go on trips before the summer ends. For students, it is the last chance to organize parties before school starts again. In some neighborhoods, people organize fireworks displays, barbecues and public arts or sports events. The football season starts on or around Labor Day and many teams play their first game of the year during Labor Day weekend.



Traditionally, people did not wear white clothes, particularly shoes, after Labor day. However, this custom is slowly dying out. More and more people now wear white all year round, rather than just in the summer. Similarly, it is the custom to wear a straw cowboy hat from Memorial Day until Labor Day, then a felt one until Memorial Day comes around again.

Labor Day is a federal holiday. All Government offices, schools and organizations and many businesses are closed. Some public celebrations, such as fireworks displays, picnics and barbecues, are organized, but they are usually low key events. For many teams, it is the start of the football season. As it is the last chance for many people to take summer trips, there may be some congestion on highways and at airports. Public transit systems do not usually operate on their regular timetables.


The first Labor Day was held in 1882. Its origins stem from the desire of the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families. In later years, prominent men and women held speeches. This is less common now, but is sometimes seen in election years. One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving.

GOODBYE MOM!

Hope this touches you the way it touched me! 

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around.  If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.




She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."



He answered, "That's okay." 



 She then said, "I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy." 



She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom."



The little old lady waved and smiled back at him..



Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries.



"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.. 



"How come so much?  I only bought 5 items." 



The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too."  



Bet you thought this was going to be a tear jerker.



Don't trust Little Old Ladies!!!





BLESSED ARE THE CRACKED, 
FOR THEY ARE THE ONES WHO LET IN THE "LIGHT"!
