The last holiday for the summer is upon us and I can think of so many things we can do to celebrate. Most people, like myself, like to go camping or fishing, but before you fully decide on your adventure, let's ask what the real meaning of Labor Day really is.

According to the United States Department of Labor, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

I guess that means that we've all done our job and done it well for the year, so take the day off and spend it on you.

Now back to what we do with the day. My family and I will probably do a nice picnic day at the park, hoping the weather will be OK. Our daughter is still too little to go out camping this year, but I promise you next year we'll be in the hills.

What will you do? Do you have any traditions that you like to do every year at this time?
