When Is Labor Day 2019 And What’s The Weekend Forecast?

Labor Day already? It’s hard to believe, but summer is winding down. And while summer doesn’t officially end until September 22, Labor Day is considered the last weekend of the season. How will you spend it? Will the weather be wet or wonderful? We’ve got a bit of history on this holiday as well as your weekend forecast.

When is Labor Day 2019?

Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September. This year, Labor Day is Monday, September 2nd. The holiday is dedicated to honoring the contributions U.S. workers have made to the strength and prosperity of our country. The very first Labor Day was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. The originator of this celebration was the Central Labor Union.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
