Labor Day

Instructions: The first official observance of Labor Day was Tuesday September 5, 1882 in New York City. The holiday was created by the Central Labor Union to recognize the contributions of the American worker. In 1884, the first Monday in September was selected to be the annual day of celebration. The government first began recognizing the holiday through ordinances in 1885 and 1886. By June of 1894, the majority of states had recognized the holiday, so the federal government passed a law making the observance of Labor Day on each first Monday in September a legal holiday. The holiday is celebrated by workers and others nationwide in street parades and festivals.
