When we say it’s Labor Day weekend do we really give any thought to the actual meaning behind the observance?

To me, it’s the exact opposite of laboring, instead a time to take it easy, relax and picnic or party with family and friends as the final “hurrah” of summer.


But then again, that was the original intent, a well-deserved respite for “laborers” — a break from daily work in an effort to rejuvenate.
