At Sarant Cadillac, we know all too well that life tends to fly by. As it does, so many things come and go without our noticing—including holidays. Don’t let those special causes for celebration go by unnoticed. This fall, make time and plans to celebrate Labor Day as it should be celebrated.
Labor Day is about more than just the end of pool season. The holiday—which, according to the Department of Labor, was first celebrated on September 5, 1882, in New York City—was designed to honor hard-working Americans and their contributions to our country. It’s far too easy to overlook what the working class provides to our society these days. But, back in the late 18th century, at the time of the Industrial Revolution, workers were literally building America with the likes of roads and railways.
This Labor Day, take some time to reflect on how your work makes a difference, whether it’s small or large. Consider honoring those who make a difference locally by writing a letter to your neighborhood’s fire station to thank them or by visiting a nearby factory. And remember to go ahead and indulge in that end-of-summer cookout. Labor Day is a time to rest from the laborious demands we put on ourselves each day.
