Labor Day honors the American Labor Movement and the contributions that workers across the nation have made to this country. In the United States, a September holiday called “Labor Day” was first proposed in the 1880’s. In 1887 Oregon was the 1st state to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official FEDERAL holiday in 1894, thirty US states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Considered the unofficial end of summer in the US, it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many families use this time for their vacationing before school starts, and then of course, those all-important backyard BBQ’s!

The whole month of September is a beautiful time of cooling temperatures, the beginning of the change of seasons and the end of another summer. We at Dream Products want to wish you and your family a Happy Labor Day weekend and encourage you to spend time with family, friends and loved ones.
