Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.’
Labor Day originated in 1882 in New York as a day off for workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894 and is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It’s interesting that the above Bible quote shows the idea isn’t a new one. Many other countries celebrate a worker’s day or labor day on May first. Enjoy the weekend.
