    Short history about Labor Day (with thanks to Elizabeth H. Sechrist):
    Labor Day, a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September in the US, Puerto Rico and Canada, honors working individuals. In addition, to many people, it is also an indication of the end of summer. Other countries celebrate this special day with different dates. For example, in Australia, Labor Day is known as Eight Hour Day. In Europe, Labor Day occurs on May 1.
    Labor Day was initially suggested as a day without work by Peter McGuire, a carpenter, and by Matthew Maguire, a machinist. The first Labor Day parade, provided by members of the Central Labor Union and Knights of Labor, took place in September 1882 in NYC. Oregon, in 1887, was the first state to make Labor Day a holiday. Shortly thereafter Colorado, New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey also adopted the September holiday. In 1894 President Grover Cleveland recognized the day as a national holiday.
