Happy Labor Day from Nichols!

Labor Day is seen as the transition from Summer to Fall. Typically, Americans will enjoy their last weekend of summer by camping, boating, fishing, hiking, and grilling with family and friends. While there will still be camping and boating, this year there will also be masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizer!

To jump start your holiday weekend, here are five interesting facts about Labor Day you might not know.

  1. The first U.S. Labor Day was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882 in New York City, planned by the Central Labor Union. 
  2. Oregon was the first to declare Labor Day an official holiday in 1887.
  3. Labor Day is considered the ‘unofficial NFL season kickoff.’ 99.44 percent of the time, the NFL plays its first official season game the Thursday after Labor Day.
  4. What are we celebrating? The contributions and achievements of the 155 million men and women who are in the U.S. workforce.
  5. On June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

So, this weekend it is okay to enjoy time with your family, grill out and have fun, but please remember to wash your hands to help you stay safe and healthy!
