Labor Day

Labor Day is not usually a highly celebrated holiday.

People just kind of look forward to a three day weekend. 

 That, in itself, is sweet.

It's good to think that there is a holiday established specifically for  American workers and that it's been celebrated for more than 100 years!

The flag in this post flies in front of the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, Colorado.  

We were there, recently, on  vacation. 

 The museum, by the way, is one of the very best I've ever seen.  

There will be posts coming up on some of the offerings so, if interested, stay tuned. 

In the meantime, may all readers in the USA enjoy Labor Day from start to finish!

You are right, the Labor Day is as important as people are respected. In Poland we have celebrated this day very pompatic during comunistic rulers. No many people have celebrated it from the capitalist changes have started. I admire You American People for you understand primary importance of this day. I wish You a nice monday.

I had wondered what Labour Day was, most holidays are pretty self explanatory but this one had me baffled

I would love to visit Colorado someday! So much to see and do there! Happy Labor Day Susan:)
I'm not taking any time off this month because I'm joining the 30 in 30 challenge! 30 paintings in 30 days:)

What lovely flag pictures today, Susan. Me and husband just had a bite to eat for lunch, and just relaxing on this Labor Day weekend. He works so hard every day, so deserves it.

I loved your comment on my jewelry post (it was one of my favorites). I would love to see all of your jewelry. It sounds like you have a big selection of it. Maybe you can do a post about it someday.

Happy Labor Day.
