It’s Labor Day…and No One Knows What That Means

Let’s just be real for a moment. No one knows why we celebrate Labor Day. Unlike Martin Luther King’s birthday and Christmas, the history and people associated with Labor Day are hardly ever discussed. Thus, I will give you a rundown of what Labor Day means.

1. You cannot wear white after Labor Day. That’s right. Labor Day is the official marker of fall fashion trends. Actually, this was advice for the northern states in America who usually have a few impending inches of snow. In theory, wearing white in the north during the snowing season would camouflage a person and make it hard for people to find you in the event that you were lost, leaving you to freeze on the side of the road. Dallas needs not to worry. Our snow does not show up until after Christmas. So, again, we observe Labor Day for fashion and safety.

2. It’s time to partaaay! You cannot forget the various barbecues and lawn parties planned. Or if you don’t want to smell like charcoal and freshly-cut grass, you can always check out local get-togethers like the Jazz fest at The Amsterdam Bar or enjoy being a Jump Off at Murphy’s. Either way, Labor Day is about parties.

3. You’re not working. That’s right. The world stops for this one day that no one knows about. It’s not as magical as anything Harry Potter has seen, but it is amazing to see how everybody remembers not to go to work, even though no one knows why we need not to go. Various excited emails and frantic text messages have haunted me all weekend, making sure that I did not go to work on Labor Day. This three-day weekend is to be honored by not working. I assume it’s akin to the Sabbath, but we still work on Sunday, so Labor Day must be extra special.

And there you have it. Labor Day is about celebrating the color white and not going to work.
