Labor Day, a holiday in the United States.
: : :
bookend their summer season with two long holiday weekends,
Memorial Day in May and Labor Day in September.
: : :
those weekends do not literally coincide with the actual turning of the seasons,
it is still marks it in a most definite way.
Labor Day in the U.S. (and Canada)
is a holiday set aside to honor working Americans,
but for most the meaning of the day is lost in BBQs, camping trips, day trips
or school shopping.
: : :
Just as an aside,
I do remember my mom always saying you ‘couldn’t’ wear white, white shoes or carry a white handbag after Labor Day.
Were you ever told that fashion rule
in the 1950s or
I don’t have to worry on that account,
the only white in my wardrobe is white t-shirts
