It’s easy to see Labor Day simply as a day off work, but don’t forget to take some time to reflect on whatever the meaning of Labor Day actually is.
More than just a day to enjoy the fleeting remains of summer, Labor Day is a cherished institution celebrating deeply revered American values, like corporate hierarchy, or something to do with working hard, ambition, or possibly goal setting.
Business Outsider analysts were pretty sure Labor Day is like Mother’s Day but for managers, at least that was what was speculated after a few brief minutes of online research.
It also may have something to do with the American Dream, which analysts claim they may be confusing with other holidays.
In any case: Instead of going to a friend’s barbecue or staying in and watching Netflix all day, try planning some activities that are in line with the Labor Day spirit.
Call your manager and thank them for their service, hire a manual laborer from outside Home Depot and have them do some work around your house, or do your normal day job. The possibilities are endless.
No matter what you do this Labor Day, just make sure you keep the meaning of this important holiday at the front of your mind!
