Labor Day is different than other holidays around the world. It isn’t associated with a religious observance in the way that Christmas, Passover, or Ramadan are. Nor does it commemorate an important day in history in the way that Cinco de Mayo does for Mexico or Bastille Day does for France. And though people do fun things on Labor Day, the holiday itself isn’t known for any specific traditions like giving gifts on Christmas or setting off fireworks for the New Year. All of this raises an interesting question: what is Labor Day exactly, and why do we celebrate it?
