Labor Day -- Oxymoron Or Fitting Name?

Happy Friday Everyone,

Well, this weekend is Labor Day Weekend. My husband is taking today off, rather than Monday. He still gets a long weekend, just in a different way.

But you know, I often wonder why Labor Day is called Labor Day when it's an off day. Should we call it Labor-Less Day?

I don't really know the history of how or why we got this Holiday, but I'm glad we do, because it's nice to have my husband home. (Hmmm, do I smell a reason for research here? I'll have to look it up and if anyone has any cool tidbits to add, let me know!)

So, if you could name a Holiday where people had off (and/or there were big sales) what would you call it?

Have A Flawless Friday!
