About Labor Day
According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “Always held on the first Monday in September, Labor Day was the idea of Peter J. Maguire (although recent research has shown that it might have been his brother Matthew’s idea), a labor union leader who in 1882 proposed a celebration honoring the American worker.
Although the day’s focus on organized labor has diminished over the years, the holiday has become a way to mark the end of the summer season—and the start of the school year.”
Labor Day marks the end of summer with families and friends coming together for picnics, barbecues and block parties before the start of Fall. Let’s celebrate with Hornitos Tequila!
