The first Monday in September. Made to honor the working men and women in the United States, though mainly known for cookouts, parades, days off from work and school (which is usually just beginning) and being the official last day of summer (while the last day is technically Sept. 20, almost every summer related activity shuts down after Labor Day).
Me and my girlfriend had a killer Labor Day weekend. Now I'm depressed knowing I have to go back to work and that Autumn is right around the corner.

The days when you're doing the job that acutally uses your passions/talents/skills. The days when you do what you were born to do.

The last day of summer. Usually school starts starts slighty before or after this day. As the name suggests, it celebrates workers. Since Summer ends, people tend to avoid wearing light colors after this day in order to keep warm.
Delivery boy: Hey, why aren't you wearing your white cardigan, Mrs. Frankbaum?
Shelia: Labor day was yesterday.
DB: Oh. Is Mr. Frankbaum at work?
Shelia: Yes, Ted is. He's a lawyer.
DB: Wanna fuck?
Sheila: I'm not an infidel, you perv!
