Labor Day is an American federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (Sept. 3 in 2012) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.
It also means, back to school, new sneakers, backpacks and fancy clothes for kids.
In the floral industry we gear up for pumpkins, gourds and all of the wonderful gold, rust and bronze flowers.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, when I look forward to the turning leaves, the rustling sound of them swirling on the ground and children making high piles and jumping in!
Just like the rule that you can't wear white after Labor Day, in the floral industry, we do the same. All of our summer containers are put away and out comes the orange, red and yellows!
I know it's sad to say goodbye to summer, but in my business, I can't wait for fall! GO PATS!!!
