Labor Day Weekend


Hunter Dixon, Reporter

    Labor Day is a day to celebrate working Americans in the U.S. and also in Canada. It was started after the labor movement in the late 19th century and then became a holiday in 1894 For some people they see Labor Day as just a chance to get a day off from school or work and to relax with family and friends, other people see Labor Day and think of all of their family traditions that they do that day or maybe the whole weekend.

    For Amanda Lawson Labor day is a way to spend with your family and have fun. “My cousin and I drive up to their lake house every year and we bring waverunners and go tubing,” said Amanda Lawson (‘18).

    Taylor Ferguson has been doing the same thing for Labor day as long as she could remember. “Every year on Labor Day, my family, friends, and I head up north to Lake Ripley. We go tubing, skiing, and just float out on the water. We also cookout every night. Going to the lake is one of my favorite things to do and every year I look forward to going up for Labor Day,” said Taylor Ferguson (‘18).

    Overall Labor Day is a day to share with your family and friends to celebrate the work that they have done throughout the year. People should not be thinking about about the school/work day that they’re getting off, they should be thinking about all the hard work they have done throughout the year.
