What Does Labor Day Mean to You?

As a child, Labor Day always meant the end of summer and a return to school. Since moving to the south over 25 years ago, where children return to school much earlier than in New England and the heat doesn’t subside until October, the meaning has changed for me.

This got me thinking about how this holiday originally started.

How important is Labor Day to you compared to the individuals and groups responsible for creating the holiday? Is it just another holiday? What traditions do you have for this holiday? And, do you think that it should be revitalized so the citizens of this country fully understand its history and meaning?
