Relax, It’s Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day was first celebrated in 1882, however it wasn’t until 1894 (after the Pullman strike in Chicago) when President Grover Cleveland approved Labor Day as a federal holiday. Over 120 years we have been celebrating this holiday. Some people see it as the last hurrah of summer, or as a holiday break between the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. For 2015 let’s celebrate all the achievements we made from this past year.

Celebrate by eating with the family,
