The United States has been celebrating Labor Day since the late 1800s. It was started as a way to recognize all the work American workers have done to create the country we know today. While most of us might spend the day relaxing and having one last summer barbecue, here are a few other ways to celebrate Labor Day.
- Shop local. Small, local businesses are the backbone of America. During the month of September (or beyond), try to do as much of your shopping at local business as you can. You might find your new favorite store or restaurant.
- Spread love. While many of us get the day off, some people don’t. Bake some goodies and take them to your local fire or police station to show how much you appreciate their hard work.
- Take a tour. Find a local farm or factory and schedule a tour to see how the products you buy make it to your home.
- Have fun. There are quite a few festivals over Labor Day weekend here in the Utah Valley. Find one you and your family would enjoy and give it a try.
At L&L Motor Co., we hope everyone has a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend.
