Spend Labor Day Weekend Doing This

Spend Labor Day Weekend Doing This. Labor Day is seen by many as a day not to work. But originally, Labor Day was created to celebrate work itself. People have observed this national holiday for over a hundred years. It originated in the late nineteenth century as a recognition of the contributions made by America’s workers to the country’s health and prosperity. This year, celebrate Labor Day weekend being mindful of its original intentions — bring together different types of workers to meet each other and realize what they have in common.

Having a backyard grill-out? The originators of Labor Day did just that. So, this year, mix it up and invite your co-workers! Make it a potluck so everyone can share a part of their lives with others. Get to know your colleagues in a relaxed setting where you can share your commonalities.

Want to honor those that are still laboring on Labor Day if you have the day off? Dine at a restaurant and generously tip your server. Work together as a group at charity. Volunteer to babysit for a mother you know, who represents all the unpaid labor in the country. Or use the day to donate your labor in a service project — mow an elderly neighbor’s lawn, help weed a friend’s garden, or work with your kids to wash someone’s car.

There are lots of authentic ways to spend your Labor Day this weekend. Call Kelly Pearson at kellypearsonrealtygroup.com.
