It is celebrated on the first Monday of September and is not a day to celebrate the working people, but a day to remember the sacrifices made by them.

The celebration of Labor Day began in the United States in 1894. It was first proposed by New York's Central Labor Union and was first celebrated in New York City.

The date was chosen because it represents the date that the Knights of Labor, a labor union, was founded on September 5, 1894.

The Knights of Labor was a labor union who wanted to improve the wages and conditions of workers.

There are many Labor Day traditions across the United States. Some of the traditions include cooking out, watching football, parades, picnics, and barbecues.

One tradition that is now a part of the day is the giving of flowers.  It is a day of remembrance for the social and economic achievements of American workers.
