|Description:||Labor Day is a US federal holiday. The holiday originated in 1882 from a desire by the Central Labor Union to create "a day off for the working man". Parades and pro-union demonstrations were central to the holiday at least through the time of World War I.|
Today, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer (which symbolically begins on Memorial Day). Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894. All fifty states have also made it a state holiday.
Canada and Bermuda also observe their own 'Labour' Day holidays on the first Monday in September.
