Why we celebrate Labor Day?
It is an annual holiday to celebrate the contribution and hard work of the workers towards the social and economic conditions of the country. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families.
Although the day’s focus on 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. Children (Students) believe that it is a celebration time for them because their schools will reopen after this.
