History of Labor Day (2)


In contrast, others believe that Matthew Maguire recommended the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York.

So how do Americans celebrate Labor Day ?  Many celebrate the day by having entertaining parades, inspirational speeches, and peaceful political demonstrations.  
For most Americans, they spend the day by enjoying it with their families and friends at the beach or park having barbecues or picnics.
