Every year Labor Day falls on the first Monday of the September month and this year it falls on September 5th. This day is also known as Labour (In British English) Day, Worker Day and International Worker Day. Labor Day means many things to us and for most of us, it is a day off from work. Basically, Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and beginning of fall season and on this season many of us get a chance to get away for a long weekend.
