HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEK-END 2017
I was recently shocked to discover that in the previous eight years of this e-zine’s existence, I’ve written about Labor Day only twice! I guess that’s what happens when you have over forty other topics to write about each day!!!
So, here I am to correct that oversight about this holiday week-end, although there’s not really much to say about it. The purpose of this federal holiday is to celebrate the contributions of workers in this country, but isn’t that just about all of us? (Except for people on government programs such as welfare and unemployment, I guess.) So, it’s basically us celebrating us. That’s sort-of like when we have to share our birthday festivities with friends who were born on the same date. (I have two pals like that.) I’m not really a fan of that—I’d rather we each have our own day!
So, good thing this isn’t a serious holiday, such as Memorial Day, that none of us pays enough respect to, in my opinion. On Labor Day, we don’t have to take time out to reflect on anything heavy. So you know what that means, don’t you??? Think about it a minute.
Ready? It means pah-tay!!! All week-end long. But only if you want to. You can also just relax for the three days, as I usually do. Actually, watching tennis is not that relaxing for me, if my beloved Roger Federer, The Stranger I Love Most, is playing.
Yes, that is correct—Labor Day always falls smack dab in the middle of the US Open! I’m often invited to pool parties or barbecues this week-end, both of which I love, but, as much as I want to attend them, I just can’t give up my precious tennis-watching.
So, now that you know what I’ll be doing this week-end, what about you guys?
I hope that whatever you come up with, it will be a fun, exciting, and/or relaxing, (or any combo of those situations,) three-day week-end for you. And I’ll meet you back here on Tuesday.
