President Cleveland set aside the first Monday in September as a holiday to soothe conflicts between Government and Labor Unions.
It's known as a Workingman's holiday.
Labor Day is a day that signals events on many levels.
In high society, it is the last day for fashionable women to wear white.
Growing up, I was told it was a big no-no to wear white shoes after Labor Day.
(that little voice still echoes in my head, and I tend to follow the rule even though I am probably the only one on the planet to do so!)
The last chance for a family get-away.
